“LGBT is criminal and shall never be legalized in Ghana” – MP, Adwoa Safo

The Minister-Designate for the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Adwoa Safo has said the activities of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) shall not be legalized in Ghana.

According to her, Ghana’s laws frown on such acts and the moral standard of Ghanaians cannot accommodate the legalization of LGBT.

Appearing before the Parliament’s Appointment Committee for her ministerial vetting on Wednesday, February 17, 2020, Adwoa Safo said the discussion on the legalization of LGBT rights in Ghana is non-negotiable.

“Mr Chair, the issue of LGBT is an issue that when mentioned, it creates some controversy but what I want to say is that our laws are clear on such practice. It makes it criminal. Section 104 of the Criminal Code prohibits one from having unnatural carnal knowledge with another person. So, on the issue of its criminality, it is non-negotiable”.

“On the issue of our cultural acceptance and norms, these practices are also frowned upon. So, for me, these are two distinct clarities on the matter and that is what I strongly stand for,” she explained.

Meanwhile, some international agencies are pushing for the legalization of LGBT in Ghana. Some individuals who are quietly involved in the act are also pushing for their voices to be heard so they can freely pursue their sexual fantasies without any hindrances.
