Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has reaffirmed his firm stance against the activities of LGBTQ in Ghana, stating unequivocally that he will not allow them to take place in the country if he is elected president.

The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) emphasized that such activities are against the core values of Ghana and cannot be tolerated.

Dr. Bawumia highlighted that both the Bible and the Quran, as well as the majority of Ghanaians, do not support LGBTQ practices.

He underscored the importance of upholding Ghanaian cultural and religious values in maintaining societal norms and morality.

During a meeting with the clergy in Tamale on Thursday, the Vice President stated, “On this matter of LGBTQ, I want to say again without any equivocation that we will not allow it in Ghana. It is not going to be allowed. Our Bible says no, our Quran says no, and our people say no. So no. That is the answer.”

“No man will be marrying a man, no woman will be marrying a woman. It is not our value. And I will stand firm no matter the consequences.

“We will stand firm on that matter no matter the consequences. We will safeguard our country and we will safeguard our people.”

Presently, the Supreme Court is hearing a suit that challenges the constitutionality of the anti-LGBTQ bill which has been approved by Parliament but yet to be assented to by President Akufo-Addo.
