Bawumia denounces LGBTQ activities

Kumasi: Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President of Ghana, says he does not support or condone LGBTQ activities in Ghana.

He noted that the activities do not find expression in the cultural and social norms that 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,” said the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He made the remarks at the Eid-ul-Fitr prayer ceremony held at the Kumasi Central Mosque on Thursday, April 11, 2024, to mark the end of the Ramadan fast.

Dr. Bawumia noted that his position on the matter is unwavering, be it as the flagbearer or a future president of the republic.

He added that “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 unequivocally 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.”

He makes the statement at a time when the President, Nana Akufo Addo, is yet to assent to the Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bills that were passed by parliament in February this year.

The holdup is due to a court case that sought to challenge the constitutionality of the bill.
