The National Coalition for Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill’s executive secretary, Moses Foh-Amoaning, thinks President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will sign the recently passed anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

A bill that criminalizes the promotion, advocacy, and funding of LGBTQ activities was passed by Parliament on February 28, 2024.

Those found guilty could spend anywhere from six months to three years in prison, while those who organized and sponsored the act could spend three to five years behind bars.

Some stakeholders, notably Virginia Evelyn Palmer, the US ambassador to Ghana, have expressed disapproval of the Bill’s passage.

In addition to highlighting the possible political ramifications should the President decide not to sign the bill, Foh-Amoaning cautioned that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) might gain an advantage in the general elections of 2024.

“Well, the President is a very smart politician and what I’ve told everybody who asked me this question is, first of all, there’s no President who has ascended the presidency of Ghana who has used the word of God more than this President. So, the point I’m trying to make is, with all that I know about the President, I know he will sign this bill.

In an interview on Otec FM, he said, “If he refuses to sign, it would be very easy for the NDC; [they] will just package the NPP as Trumu Trumu party.”

He promised to challenge the anti-gay bill’s opponents in court and reaffirmed his commitment to protecting Ghanaian family values.
