The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has made a bold declaration regarding his stance on the legalisation of LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana.
According to him, he will rather die than to oversee the legalisation of LGBTQ+ activities. He made this revelation when speaking at a press conference in Tamale as part of Parliament’s 30th Anniversary Celebration over the weekend.
“For you all to participate in it, count me out of Ghana because I will prefer to join my Maker than to live,” the Speaker of Parliament said.
“That is me. I am a Catholic and pro-life. I will not do anything that will end the world because God says the world is eternal. Until He comes back we cannot do that to end the world.
“They have the repercussions in their country and I can tell you that in the next 50 years, there will be no indigenous European in the world.”
He indicated that the anti-gay bill will be passed under his tenure as Speaker.
Speaking about the bill, Bagbin said, “The Bill recognises our family values, it accepts what we call normal and not abnormal and it protects those who by nature or whatever are caught and so we will pass the legislation that we believe will not offend the position of the 1992 Constitution.”
Meanwhile, the Constitutional and Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament has recommended that the House passes the controversial Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021.
According to the Committee, the majority of Ghanaians are in favour of the legislation.
