You don’t have the right to be gay or lesbian in Ghana – Ayariga

Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga says homosexuals have no rights in Ghana and they must recognise it as such.

This, he explains, the laws of the country frowns on the practice of homosexuality in Ghana.

Ayariga said people who identify themselves as homosexuals should be nabbed and arraigned.

Speaking to GHOne’s Serwaa Amihere on Tuesday morning, the Bawku Central lawmaker said “They don’t have the right to practice gay or lesbianism so they can’t say their rights have been violated. You don’t have the right to be gay or lesbians in Ghana. But I’m saying any person can advocate that we should confer that right on them.”

He added, “So we should now look for him or her that says they are into the activities and begin to punish the person for what they say they are.”

His comments come amidst the raging controversy regarding the opening of an office by members of the Lesbians Gays Bisexuals Transgender Queer and Intersexed community (LGBTQI).

The January 31 event saw in attendance representatives from the Australian and Danish Embassies and other EU delegation.
