Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu has condemned LGBT + activities in Ghana, describing it as immoral and dehumanizing.
The Tamale South lawmaker said during the vetting of the Tourism Minister-designate on Thursday, February 2021..
While asking the nominee to unequivocally state his position on the raging LGBT+ debate in Ghana, he said “There’s a significant development in our culture today about lesbianism and gays and you are a true Muslim; I want to know where you stand because where I stand is that I find it immoral and dehumanising and not in the context of any Ghanaian culture for a man to be relating to a man, and a woman to be relating to a woman”
“I know where Prof Mike Oquaye stands strongly. He’s anti-lesbianism and gay. As a leader of this house, he stated that publicly; and as a reverend”, Mr Iddrisu added.
In response, the Minister-designate Mohammed Awal said: “The laws of the land on that matter will apply if I become the minister”.
