The Office of the President cautioned Parliament not to send the Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his assent.

A statement from the presidency signed by the Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante explained that until an interlocutory injunction on the bill before the Supreme Court is cleared, the president will not prioritize the bill.  

“It is the understanding of this Office that both applications have also been duly served on Parliament. Therefore, it would be improper for you to transmit the Bill to the President and equally improper for this Office to receive the Bill until the Supreme Court determines the matters raised in the suits,” A portion of the statement said

“In the circumstances, you are kindly requested to cease and desist from transmitting the Bill to the President until the matters before the Supreme Court are resolved,” it added.
