Alban Bagbin, Speaker of the Ghanaian Parliament, has stressed that he will never support the legalisation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) activities in the country.
Speaking with journalists in Tamale, Ghana, Bagbin vowed to fight against the rights of homosexuals, adding that their rights will not be legalised in his time.
He blamed the decline of the indigenous population in most European countries on the LGBTQ+ community, adding that queer activities must stop immediately to contain this decline.
“For you all to participate in it, count me out of Ghana because I will prefer to join my Maker than to live,” the Speaker of Parliament said.
“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 European in the world.”
Bagbin also disclosed that the anti-gay bill will be passed under his tenure as Speaker.
On the bill, Bagbin said, “The Bill recognises our family values, it accepts what we call normal and not abnormal and it protects those who by nature or whatever are caught and so we will pass the legislation that we believe will not offend the position of the 1992 Constitution.”
