Janet Asana Nabla, the General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), said in a statement made during the discussion over the anti-LGBTQI+ law that parliament should pass the bill promptly to protect our precious heritage.

“It is our request to this current august house of parliament to immediately pass the bill to safeguard our cherished heritage”, part of the statement read.

The majority of Ghanaians are shocked and disapprove of LGBTQI+ sexuality, according to the statement.

“A poor country such as ours, are we prepared to handle the health complications of homosexuals?” the party asked in the statement.

The Ghana AIDS Commission has recognized the LGBTQI+ community as one of the key causes of HIV/AIDS spread, according to the statement.

“Isn’t this the right time to control their activities?”, the PNC asked.

“Listening to those against the anti-LGBTQI+ bill, we found their arguments very weak and unacceptable. Their claim that the bill seeks to regulate or prosecute sinners of the Almighty God and that all other sins are sins is not true”.

“The truth is that the activities of the LGBTQI+ community have the tendency of destroying our country just like narcotic drug dealers amongst other crimes”.

“Again, as stated above, their activities have repercussions on our health system; we would start having complications that are alien to our health facilities”, the statement said.

The idea that the bill would violate LGBTQI+ members’ human rights privileges “falls flat before the Constitution, which has already criminalized their activity,” according to the statement.

The PNC has stated that just because it supports the anti-LGBTQTI+ bill does not mean it opposes people who are “victims of this canker.”
