“I stand opposed to LGBTQ practice”-Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia

The Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has strongly denounced the LGBTQ practice in Ghana.

In his inaugural public statement on the contentious matter, Dr. Bawumia unequivocally opposed it while speaking to a large gathering of Muslims in Kumasi during the Eid prayers.

The Parliament of Ghana has recently approved a robust anti-LGBTQ Bill, which is currently awaiting presidential approval.

However, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that he cannot sign the bill into law due to ongoing legal challenges regarding its constitutionality, raised by human rights activists in court.

Despite this, Dr. Bawumia emphasized in his speech that he does not personally endorse the practice of LGBTQ. He stated that his stance aligns with the teachings of his religion, Islam, as well as with other religions, and reflects the social and cultural norms of Ghana.

“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,” he stressed.
