Charles Owusu, a former Head of Monitoring Unit at the Forestry Commission, has thrown a challenge to the Members of Parliament who disagree with the anti-LGBTQ+ bill to publicly declare their support for the homosexual community.

Although all 275 Members of Parliament have accepted the bill, Charles Owusu however believes there are some who agreed out of fear.

To him, it is good that none of the MPs could boldly speak against the bill, nonetheless, he is giving anyone who feels he is not in agreement with the bill to come out and boldly tell Ghanaians his position.

"I dare anybody in Parliament who doesn't agree to come publicly to tell us he or she support the LGBTQ. If you are a man or woman, come out and tell us publicly; whether you will go back to that Parliament, you will see", he said.

He stressed that homosexuality is a "taboo. It destroys a nation", therefore it won't be entertained in Ghana.

Charles Owusu applauded the MPs for unanimously adopting the bill, stating on Peace FM's "Kokrokoo" show that "they will be remembered. Posterity will remember you".

The MPs, on Wednesday, July 5, adopted the “Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2022” which is to provide for proper human sexual rights and Ghanaian family values as well as proscribe lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) and related activities.

The bill, when it comes into effect, will criminalize homosexual acts, hence offenders may face a jail term.
