I will apply our laws against LGBT+ – Awal

His comments follow a question by the minority leader to clearly state his position on the matter.

Tourism Minister-designate, Dr Ibrahim Mohammed Awal says he will apply the laws of Ghana against LGBT+ activities in the country.

His comments come on the back of raging LGBT+ debate in Ghana, following the recent opening of an administrative office in Ashongman for people who subscribe to such sexual orientation.

Appearing before the Appointments Committee of Parliament during his vetting on Thursday, 25 February 2021, Dr Awal was asked to state his position on the matter.

“I find it immoral and dehumanizing, and not accepted in Ghana’s cultural practices,” Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu said.

Awal Mohammed noted he is against the LGBT+ community and pledged to help bring an end to the practice in Ghana if approved by the 26-member committee.

The former Minister of Business Development said: “The laws of the land on that matter will apply if I become the minister”.
