Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, declares that he will continue to oppose LGBTQ+ activities even after taking office as president of the country.

Speaking to the assembly at the Ashanti Region’s Kumasi Central Mosque for Eidul-Fitr prayers, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) stated that it is unable to support LGBTQ initiatives.

As per his statement, LGBTQ activities are frowned upon by Ghanaians’ cultural and societal norms.

“First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality.”

“Furthermore, as a Muslim, my view on this matter aligns with the position of my religious faith. The Holy Quran is replete with verses frowning on LGBTQ acts, including same-sex marriages. My faith is therefore very strictly against the practice of homosexuality, no “ifs” or “buts”. No shades of grey.”

“Therefore, I personally cannot support that which my religion, and indeed, all the major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocably forbid. All the major religious traditions in Ghana (Christianity and Islam) are opposed to this practice and I stand opposed to it now and I will stand opposed to it as President, Insha Allah.”

A powerful anti-LGBTQ bill was passed by Ghana’s parliament and is currently awaiting the president’s signature.

The president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has stated that he will not be able to sign the bill into law because human rights advocates are contesting its constitutionality in court.
