Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says he does not support any form of  LGBTQ+ community in Ghana after maintaining their activities are against his religion and that of the Christian fraternity.

This is the first time the NPP flagbearer has spoken about the LGBTQ+ community after the passage of the controversial Anti-LGBTQ+ bill by parliament.

“First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality,” Dr. Bawumia said.

“Furthermore, as a Muslim, my view on this matter aligns with the position of my religious faith. The Holy Quran is replete with verses frowning on LGBTQ acts, including same-sex marriages. My faith is therefore very strictly against the practice of homosexuality, no “ifs” or “buts”. No shades of grey.”

“Therefore, I cannot support that which my religion, and indeed, all the major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocably forbid. All the major religious traditions in Ghana (Christianity and Islam) are opposed to this practice and I stand opposed to it now and I will stand opposed to it as President, Insha Allah.” Dr Mahamudu Bawumia told the congregation during the Eidul-Fitr prayers at the Kumasi Central Mosque in the Ashanti Region.
