Ghanaian politician and one of the leading members of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Gabby Otchere Darko has weighed in on the conversation regarding the passage of the Anti-LGBTQ+ bill in parliament.
The bill, which is being championed by National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George and 7 other parliamentarians has received a lot of backlash from Ghanaians on social media.
Gabby Darko averred in a recent tweet that the bill is full of hate and meant to get Ghana blacklisted for promoting hate meanwhile Ghana is not known to hate.
He reminded Ghanaians of the fact President Nana Akufo Adddo is not going to legalize same se,x marriage as assured earlier.
“Gay+ activities are already illegal in our country. But, we aren’t known to hate. The President has given his word he won’t legalise it. This Bill only serves one purpose: to get Ghana blacklisted for promoting hate! Surely, the promoters of the Bill can’t say they aren’t aware!” he tweeted.
According to Pulsegh, the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021 will see culprits face a jail term of up to ten years depending on the crime, if passed in its current state.
