NPP Flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia Firmly Rejects LGBTQ Practice in Ghana

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President and Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has made a resolute stance against LGBTQ practices in Ghana.

Addressing thousands of Muslims in Kumasi during Eid prayers on Thursday, Dr. Bawumia delivered his first public commentary on the contentious issue, leaving no room for ambiguity.

Expressing his personal views, Dr. Bawumia firmly denounced LGBTQ practices, aligning his stance with the cultural, religious, and societal norms of Ghana.

“I will like to take this opportunity to personally comment on the raging issue of LGBTQ in Ghana,” Dr. Bawumia emphasized. “First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality.”

Citing his Islamic faith, Dr. Bawumia underscored the alignment of his beliefs with the teachings of the Holy Quran, emphasizing its unequivocal prohibition of LGBTQ acts.

“I personally cannot support that which my religion, and indeed, all the major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocally forbid,” Dr. Bawumia asserted. “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.”

Dr. Bawumia’s remarks come amid the ongoing debate surrounding the anti-LGBTQ Bill passed by Ghana’s Parliament, which awaits Presidential assent. However, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed reservations, citing constitutional challenges raised by human rights activists in court.
