The Speaker of Parliament said that a bill to stop promoting LGBTQI+ activities in the country will be presented in the House of Representatives this week.
Alban Kingsford Bagpin says the bill will be passed before the end of the year.
Speaking at a Christian Fellowship meeting in Parliament on Tuesday, he said that no amount of threats against MPs who support the bill would not prevent the House of Representatives from approving it.
“Good faith always triumphs over evil and whoever threatens the deputies who lead this law, please warn them. We cannot be threatened in our homes.
“This must be stated loud and clear to those who have come to do business in Ghana, those who represent their country and think they are right, we also represent our country and they will never and never can dictate to us how to live or not in this world.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives said he is optimistic that the House of Representatives will pass the bill as soon as possible.
“I have gone through it, and I am sure, and I will confirm what Sam George has said, that this bill will be a point of reference for many countries. It is a very detailed and comprehensive bill that we can refer to as justice.”
According to Mr. Bagpin, the bill is being implemented in accordance with all provisions of the 1992 Constitution, the country’s laws and international obligations.
“It is a law even those who oppose it will find it difficult not to accept it, and I want to assure you all that this week we will make way for the bill to be formally presented to Parliament,” said the Speaker of the House of Representatives. .
Former MP Nadoli Kalio said that the bill would be referred to the relevant committee and the process would go ahead.
“We invite anyone who has anything to add or withdraw to appear before the committee. Then the committee will present the report and inform you of all the stages of processing the bill, and, God willing, it will be passed this year.”
He added, “I know that God will look upon us. Those who think otherwise, please advise them. Some deputies who do not have the courage to go with us, do not worry, we know Thomas’ doubts.”
“Tomorrow you will see the light and follow the light. With that, I want to assure you all that what you have done is the right thing to do.”
