Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, the Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, has made a bold statement endorsing the current anti-gay bill being considered by the legislature.
According to Bagbin, the bill is set to be passed in the ongoing session, and some Members of Parliament have even traveled to Europe and the Americas to gather diverse perspectives before its implementation.
The Speaker firmly asserted that he refuses to be part of any generation that legalizes homosexual activities and would rather die than live in such a society.
The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill is currently under consideration in Parliament. It was proposed by eight MPs from both the Majority and Minority caucuses.
Leading the charge for the bill is Sam Nartey George, the MP for Ningo-Prampram and an Elder at Perez Chapel International.
During an interaction with journalists in Tamale, Speaker Bagbin emphasized that the West, which advocates for the rights of homosexuals, is already facing negative consequences. He claimed that the indigenous population in many European countries is dwindling due to the actions of gays and lesbians. Bagbin stressed that it would be in Ghana’s best interest to put an end to such activities.
In his own words, Bagbin declared, “Count me out of Ghana if you all participate in it. I will prefer to join my Maker than to live. That is me. I am a Catholic and pro-life. I will not do anything that will end the world because God says the world is eternal. Until He comes back, we cannot do that to end the world. They have the repercussions in their country, and I can tell you that in the next 50 years, there will be no indigenous Europeans in the world.”
Bagbin reiterated his commitment to ensuring the passage of the anti-gay bill during his tenure as Speaker of Parliament.
