I will never support LGBTQ activities; my faith forbids it – Bawumia

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has expressed strong opposition to LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana. Dr. Bawumia stated that the Islamic faith and other religions in Ghana reject such activities.

As a devout Muslim, he made it obvious that he does not support or condone LGBTQ behavior.

The Vice President’s remarks were spurred by appeals from many sources, mainly specific Muslim populations in the country, pushing him to clarify his stand on the LGBT problem.

These words come at a time when President Akufo-Addo has yet to sign a bill into law on the subject.

I will never support LGBTQ activities; my faith forbids it – Bawumiamia

Addressing the audience during Eidul-Fitr prayers at the Kumasi Central Mosque in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Bawumia restated his staunch opposition to LGBTQ activities, stating that such practices would not be accepted under his administration.

“First of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality,” Dr. Bawumia said.

“Furthermore, as a Muslim, my view on this matter aligns with the position of my religious faith. The Holy Quran is replete with verses frowning on LGBTQ acts, including same-sex marriages. My faith is therefore very strictly against the practice of homosexuality, no “ifs” or “buts”. No shades of grey.”

“Therefore, I personally cannot support that which my religion, and indeed, all the major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocably forbid. 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.”
