I Strongly Stand Opposed To LGBTQ+ And Will Remain Against It As President - Bawumia 

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has unequivocally expressed his strong opposition against the practice of homosexuality in Ghana.

Speaking at Eid-ul-Fitr prayers in Kumasi on Thursday, Dr. Bawumia told thousands of Muslims that his faith as a Muslim is against the practice.

"I will like to take this opportunity to personally comment on the raging issue of LGBTQ in Ghana. 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", Dr. Bawumia established.

He also pledged not to waver in his faith but rather perpetually stay opposed to the LGBTQ+ community and their activities, stressing his position will remain the same while as President of Ghana. 

"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",  the Vice President cum presidential candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party stressed.
