I’ll stand firm against LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana no matter the consequences, says Bawumia

The presidential candidate of the NPP said LGBTQ+ activities were alien to the country’s culture and values and would never permit it regardless of the consequences 

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has reiterated his stance against activities of LGBTQ+ in Ghana if elected as president

He said such activities were alien to the country’s culture and values and would never permit it regardless of the consequences.

Dr Bawumia pointed out that neither the Bible nor the Quran, as well as the Ghanaian populace, support such practices.

The NPP presidential candidate said this during a meeting with the clergy in Tamale in the Northern Region on Thursday (16 May).

The vice-president said, “On this matter of LGBTQ+, I want to say again without any equivocation that we will not allow it in Ghana. It is not going to be allowed. Our Bible says no, our Quran says no, and our people say no. So, no. That is the answer.”

“No man will be marrying a man; no woman will be marrying a woman. It is not our value. And I will stand firm no matter the consequences.

“We will stand firm on that matter no matter the consequences. We will safeguard our country and we will safeguard our people.

Dr Bawumia is on a nationwide campaign tour across all 16 regions until the first week of June.

‘Bold Solutions for our Future,’ is the theme for his campaign, focusing on three key pillars: The battle of ideas and character, The battle of records and the battle of effective campaign.

The NPP presidential candidate and his campaign team are focusing on issue-based electioneering, tackling cogent, practical, and tailor-made ideas to deal with issues that are dear to the Ghanaian people.

He is meeting a wide range of stakeholders including traditional rulers, the clergy, youth groups, traders, drivers, farmers, and students, and interacts with businesses and associations.

He has been visiting market centres and other public places to listen to the concerns of both traders and consumers.

Dr Bawumia also engaged the media, held townhall meetings and continued with his regular stakeholder engagements with Ghanaians.

Since his election as the NPP presidential candidate on 4 November 2023, for the 7 December Election, Dr Bawumia has been continually active in undertaking broad consultations and interactions with various groups across the country.
