Akatsi South’s representative in parliament, Bernard Ahiafor, has passionately voiced his opposition to LGBTQ+ activities and said that they constitute a serious threat to Ghanaian customs.

His comments follow the presentation of a report to the plenary by the Constitutional, Legal, and Parliamentary Affairs Committee on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021, also known as the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

During his speech, Ahiafor emphasized, “Activities of the LGBTQI are injurious to our traditions.”

He warned against the long-term effects of accepting LGBTQ+ practices, saying that “Countries practicing LGBTQI in 50 years will be extinct.”

The member of parliament is adamant that the issue at hand needs to be addressed right away.

Ahiafor stressed the urgency of passing the anti-LGBTQ+ bill while pleading with his colleagues MPs to do so.

In order to safeguard Ghanaian customs and values, he said, “This is a law that should be passed under a certificate of urgency.” He made this statement to emphasize how crucial it is to take action quickly.

Proponents of the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021 contend that it is vital to protect Ghanaian cultural values and standards, which has been the subject of heated debate in the nation.

The legislation aims to make LGBTQ+ activities illegal and to impose severe penalties on violators.

The bill’s opponents claim that it fosters discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity and violates people’s fundamental human rights.

They claim that in order to promote diversity and respect for all parts of society, a more inclusive and tolerant approach is required.
