The Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Nana Obiri Boahen has said that gay and lesbianism cannot be entertained and welcomed in Ghana.
In an interview on Okay FM he noted that the fight against LGBTQ+ goes beyond NPP, NDC and even religion.
”This fight against the activities of LGBTQ+ in the country has nothing to do with any political party; its neither NPP’s nor NDC’s fight and it is also not a fight for the Christian or the Muslims”, he noted.
He went on to say that if someone want to impose a certain culture on Ghanaians the it is wrong an cannot be accepted.
”If someone come to impose a certain culture on us as Ghanaians, it is wrong and we cannot accept it. It is not the matter for the NPP and NDC MPs and so I’m not indicting any MP for not talking about the bill or not getting involved in the debate”, he noted.
He went on to say that the activities of lesbians and gays cannot be entertained, welcomed or legalized in the country since their activities and inconsistent with some provisions in the 1992 constitution of Ghana.
”What some of us are saying is very simple; gay and lesbianism cannot be entertained and welcomed in the country”, he stated. We cannot legalize and recognize gay and lesbianism in this country; it can never happen. Every society has its likes and dislikes, provided it is inconsistent with and in contravention with some provisions in the constitution”, he added.
