Minister of Communications and Digitisation and Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma West, Hon Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has hinted that the activities of the LGBTQI+ is likely to resurface in Ghana in the next century, but currently, there is no fertile ground for it.
Sh said inasmuch as laws are being in place to prohibit its activities, the future is still uncertain for its revival.
She emphasized that the president Nana Akufo-Addo made similar comment sometime ago due to the uncertainty of the future and it’s in that light she also thinks the activities of LGBTQI and its related issues can resurrect in the future.
Hon Ursula Owusu-Ekuful was quick to add that the current discussions and laws of the country cannot allow the activities to germinate.
She made this statement during the second reading of the Anti-LGBTQI bill in Parliament.
The MP for Assin South Hon John Ntim Fordjour in a sharp response, said Ghana will not pass any Anti-LGBTQI bill now nor in the future.
After the House had unanimously adopted the report on the bill championed by the MP for Asante Akim North, Andy Appiah-Kubi, the Second Deputy Speaker, Andrew Asiamah, gave time to members to contribute to the bill.
During the debate, Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon. S. K Bagbin gave opportunity to any Mp out of the 275 who is against the LGBTQ bill to stand up and none of them stood up.
