On Tuesday June 29, 2021, Some Members of Parliament were spotted at a conference fervently praying to drive out the obscene spirit of LGBTQI+ in Ghana.
The conference was organized ahead of the introduction of a Private Member’s Bill to criminalize homosexuality and its related activities in the country but it turned out to be a prayer conference.
This prayer session was led by the Parliamentary Christian Fellowship before the bill was signed for onward introduction to parliament.
The honorable members of parliament were heard seriously blowing in tongues to cast and bind every evil spirit that will cause the floor to kick against the criminalization of LGBTQI+ activities in Ghana.
Hon. Sam George, Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, and five other MPs have pushed for a bi-partisan Private Members Bill to proscribe and criminalize the advocacy and practice of homosexuality in Ghana.
On the floor of Parliament earlier on, Sam George said; “It is our belief that all members of this House would support this Bill when it comes before the House.”
Sam George also said the Bill would seek to further strengthen Ghana’s legal jurisprudence and existing legislation on unnatural carnal knowledge to reflect the current state of affairs.
Speaker of Parliament, on. Alban Bagbin has assured the house that he is considering a legislation that will criminalize the activities of the Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) persons in Ghana.
His stand, according to some critics, will end the debate that government of Ghana supports the group and has some of its members secretly funding its activities.
