• President Mahama is yet to openly talk about the LGBTQ+ issue
• All his archetypes are on record as dismissing the direction
• Parliament is expected to restart work on an enemy of LGBTQ+ Bill
A previous representative Health Minister, Bernard Okoe-Boye has brought up that of all Ghana’s previous presidents under the Fourth Republic, John Dramani Mahama is the one to focus on yet to unveil an unmistakable proclamation on same-sex relations.
Okoe-Boye, whiles talking on the October 21 release of Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show, focused on that what caused him to notice that ‘reality’ was the counter LGBTQ+ Bill that is before Parliament.
He clarified that the Bill unmistakably catches the freely recorded perspectives on Presidents Jerry Rawlings, John Kufuor and John Mills with the exception of that of John Dramani Mahama.
He said, he called attention to that ‘inconsistency to Ningo Prampram MP, Sam Nartey George –the lead advertiser of the Bill, who said he will support a correction of the Bill to catch the perspectives on Mr. Mahama.
“The main previous president who has not been caught on record and has not been heard, I have not heard… The main previous President who was not caught in this Bill as having spoken with regards to LGBTQ+ and spread the word about his position is His Excellency John Dramani Mahama.
“Furthermore, when I called attention to Sam George, Same George said it is a significant exclusion and that he will introduce an alteration. Sam Geroge let it out.
“I would empower him… since I have advised him that President Akufo-Addo has had the chance at a greater gathering and he said it that ‘I came to declare to you that under my supervision, it can’t occur’,” the previous Ledzokuku MP added.
Advertisers of the counter LGBTQ+ Bill
The LGBTQ+ Bill before Parliament is named: “The Promotion of Proper Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021.” It is a Private Members’ Bill supported by a bipartisan gathering of administrators.
The eight MPs who supported the Bill are Sam Nartey George (MP, Ningo Prampram), Emmanuel Bedzrah (MP, Ho West) Della Adjoa Sowah (MP, Kpando), John Ntim Fordjour (MP, Assin South) – the sole NPP MP supporting the Bill.
The leftover patrons are Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini (MP, Tamale North), Helen Adjoa Ntoso (MP, Krachi West), Rita Naa Odoley Sowah (MP, La Dadekotopon) and Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor (MP, South Dayi).
Ghana’s favorable to gay group
A gathering of 18 academicians and common freedoms safeguards have voiced solid resistance to the bill before Parliament, which is looking to broadly condemn the exercises of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, LGBTQ+.
The gathering presented an update to Parliament looking for that the bill be dismissed in light of the fact that it was generally unlawful and encroached on essential basic liberties.
Individuals from Parliament behind the bill, driven by Ningo Prampram MP Sam Nartey George, have rubbished the update and affirmed that the bill will be passed into law since it has the help of the more extensive Ghanaian people.
