“LGBTQ+ is a sign of end times” – Hassan Ayariga throws in support for the Bill


Mr Hassan Ayariga, the Leader of the All People’s Congress (APC), believes that God created males and females for the purpose of procreation, and that any behavior that prevents procreation should not be permitted.

He stated he was surprised that the same nations that were advocating for the acceptance of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) designation were not supporting polygamy in their jurisdictions, but rather saw it as a crime.

“LGBTIQI+ is barbarous and incompatible with our traditional and moral beliefs.” “Everyone has a right, but no one has the right to misuse that right or force their rights on others,” he added.

Mr. Ayariga also said that LGBTQI+ practices were a harbinger of the end times.

Eight Members of Parliament (MPs), led by NDC’s Sam George, MP for Ningo Prampram, have pledged to support the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, which aims to criminalize the actions of LGBTQ+ people.

In addition, the proposed text aims to criminalize groups that advocate for or support the practice in the nation.

Those who engage in the activity might face up to five years in jail if the Bill is enacted.

Proponents claim that Ghanaians overwhelmingly favor the bill, which is one of the reasons they are pressing for it to be approved as soon as possible.

The proposal, however, is facing fierce resistance, with over 120 letters aimed at influencing the draft being received by the Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs.

Top Christian and Islamic clergy have given memos to the House’s Committee on Constitution and Legal Affairs in support of the bill as these memoranda dribble in ahead of Parliament’s reopening on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.

The whole LGBTQ+ saga has sparked a discussion in the country, with conventional rules, politicians, religious leaders, and business leaders all expressing opposition to LGBTQ+ campaigners’ demands that their practice be legalized in the country.
