According to him, this position is fueled by his education. In an interview with Accra-based Neat FM, Mr. Mensah-Bonsu said, “My education does not support this kind of activity in any way.”
Ruling party lawmakers have come under pressure to declare their position on LGBTQI activities after their deputy secretary general, Nana Obiri Boahen, expressed concern over their apparent silence on the issue.
“I am surprised not to see a good number of NPP MPs championing this cause, I am worried.”
“No one should even encourage that we shouldn’t talk about it, we should stop it.” How can we discuss this even in the public domain, ”he told JoyNews in an interview.
A former Chairman of the Election Commission (EC), Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan, and Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II also declared their support for the anti-LGBTQI + bill pushed by some MPs.
Dr Afari-Gyan said: “I don’t think same-sex marriage can be justified on the basis of human rights.
In a statement, he said: “the freedom to make your own choices, to exercise personal initiative and to develop”.
“I am also aware that some of the factors that we regard today as human rights, such as the right to education, to good drinking water and to housing, and the rights of women, workers and children , were not considered as such in the past.
