"I personally cannot support that which my religion, all major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocably forbid" - Bawumia declares stance on LGBTQ


Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has openly declared his stance on the controversial LGBTQ brouhaha.


According to Dr. Bawumia, he, personally cannot support that which his religion, and indeed, all major religions in Ghana clearly and unequivocably forbid.


Speaking at the Kumasi Central Mosque during Eid Mubarak, he said "Therefore, I personally cannot support that which my religion, and indeed, all major religions in Ghana as well as our societal norms and values, 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"


"On the issue of LGBTQ, first of all, it is important to note that our cultural and societal norms and values as Ghanaians frown on the practice of homosexuality"


"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"
