Video: I don’t support LGBTQ+ practice in Ghana- Bawumia boldly declares

The Vice President and the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has boldly declares that he is against the practice of LGBTQ+ in Ghana.

According to him, he cannot support what his religion and values of Ghana frowns upon.

“I will like to take this opportunity to personally comment on the raging issue of LGBTQ in Ghana. First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality,” Dr. Bawumia stated.

“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,” he emphatically stated.

This is Dr Bawumia’s first public declaration on the matter after several calls for him to state his position on the controversial issue.

“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,” he added.

Bawumia madd this statement when addressing a gathering of Muslims to commemorate the 2024 Eid-ul-Fitr celebration at the Kumasi Central Mosque in the Ashanti region.

Ghana’s Parliament on February 28 passed the anti-LGBTQ Bill which is currently awaiting a Presidential assent.

However, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has indicated his inability to sign the bill into law due to legal issues before the Supreme Court.
