• NPP declares its position on LGBTQ +

• John Boadu says nuclear power plant will not accept LGBTQ + activities

• NPP secretary general wants the rights of LGBTQ people to be respected

“The NPP will not support the activities of the LGBTQI + community… we respect the rights of individuals…” is the affirmation of the New Patriotic Party on the debate and the ongoing discussions on homosexuality in the country.

This, according to party secretary general John Boadu, reflects their zero tolerance for activities by the community or LGBTQ + groups, citinewsroom.com reports.

He made this known by addressing delegates to the Eastern Regional Delegates Conference in Kyebi.

“The nuclear power plant will not support the activities of the LGBTQI + community. We respect the rights of individuals but cannot support actions that go against our principles. But if there were regulation, we would make sure their rights were protected, but we would not support LGBTQI + activities, ”he said.

The Ghanaian Human Sexual Rights and Family Values ​​Promotion Bill 2021 is before parliament and aims to make the practice of all homosexual activities illegal in the country.

The MP-sponsored bill is led by Ningo-Prampram MP Sam Nartey George and has so far generated a lot of interest and conversation across the country.

Sam George and his colleagues want the promotion, advocacy, funding and acts of homosexuality criminalized in the country in their quest to promote Ghanaian values.

Meanwhile, 18 prominent figures rejected the anti-gay bill in parliament.

In their view, the bill violates almost all of the essential fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the constitution.

The right to freedom of speech and expression, the right of assembly, freedom of association and the right to organize, the right not to be discriminated against and the right to human dignity are what is denied to the LGBTQ + community, they argued.
