Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin stated, “Frankly, the argument to legalize LGBT was a non-starter in the first place,” after the anti-gay bill was passed by the legislature on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

“Africans have already lost too much of our values to the slave trade and colonialism,” the speaker declared.

According to him, it is the divine duty of this generation to protect what is left of Africa’s civilizations and endeavor to rebuild what has been destroyed.

In a Facebook post, the speaker expressed gratitude to Ghanaian lawmakers for honoring the people’s desire to preserve traditional marriage and family values.

In order to put an end to the situation, Speaker Bagbin promised that Parliament will make sure President Nana Akufo-Addo signed the law.

Read the post below:

The bill forbids financing, advocacy, and promotion of LGBTQI+ causes and criminalizes related acts.
The bill stipulates that those who participate in these activities might serve terms ranging from six months to three years in prison, while sponsors and promoters might get sentences of three to five years.

Meanwhile, if the measure is signed into law, Ghana’s development efforts might be negatively impacted, as warned by the US and UNAIDS.
