I stand opposed to LGBTQ acts, says Bawumia

The vice-president said he cannot support that which his religion and all major religions in Ghana forbid

Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has emphatically rejected the practice of LGBTQ in the country.

Addressing thousands of Muslims in Kumasi during the observation of Eid prayers on Thursday (11 April), the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP),said he does not support the practice of LGBTQ, and his belief is consistent with the stance of his religion, Islam, other religions, as well as the social and cultural norms of Ghana.

He said: “… First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians 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. My faith is therefore very strictly against the practice of homosexuality, no “ifs” or “buts”. No shades of grey,” the vice-president said.

He added: “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.”
