A fast trending video of Ghanaian Lawmakers praying fervently ahead of introduction of bill to criminalize LGBTQ has got people talking.
Recently, the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin stated activities of LGBTQI+ groups will not be tolerated in the country.
“It is indeed a phenomenon that should not be encouraged or accepted by our society due to its eventual negative impact on society,” Bagbin.
He made this known in a letter responding to a petition to Parliament demanding the amendment of Ghana’s laws to deal with the activities of the groups.
In the letter, Bagbin said without cageyness that urgent actions are being taken in Parliament to pass a law that will eventually “nip the activities of these groups in the bud.”
He said advanced stakeholder consultation is also ongoing. Results will feed into the bill that will be passed into law by Parliament eventually.
In video sighted by GhArticles, the MPs were seen and heard praying fervently as they look forward to passing a bill to criminalize the LGBTQ activities in the country.
While some were sitting, others were on their feet as they lifted up their voices in prayer against LGBTQ activities and the acceptance of the bill.
The viral video has garnered a lot of reactions from Ghanaians on social media.
