Anti-LGBTQ Bill: The bill has not fully been authenticated; reduce pressure on President Akufo-Addo by Hon Afenyo-Markin


In a whirlwind of debates and tensions surrounding Ghana’s proposed Anti-LGBTQ bill, recent developments have unveiled a significant twist. The bill, aimed at criminalizing LGBTQ activities in the country, has yet to receive full authentication, alleviating some pressure on President Akufo-Addo, according to statements made by Hon. Alexander Afenyo-Markin.

The bill, which has sparked intense discourse nationally and internationally, found itself at the center of attention once again as concerns over its authenticity emerged. While proponents of the bill advocate for its swift passage, opponents argue that it violates fundamental human rights and promotes discrimination.

In a recent statement, Hon. Alexander Afenyo-Markin, a prominent figure in Ghana’s political landscape, urged for caution and patience in the authentication process. He emphasized the importance of thorough examination and consultation before any legislative action is taken, citing the need to uphold both the constitution and Ghana’s international commitments.

The delay in authentication has inadvertently lessened the immediate pressure on President Akufo-Addo, who has faced mounting scrutiny and calls for decisive action on the bill. With the bill yet to undergo thorough scrutiny and validation, the President finds himself in a delicate position, balancing the demands of various stakeholders while upholding Ghana’s democratic principles.

As the nation awaits further developments, the controversy surrounding the Anti-LGBTQ bill continues to highlight the complexities of social, cultural, and legal issues facing Ghanaian society. The outcome of this legislative process is poised to have far-reaching implications, not only for the LGBTQ community but for the broader landscape of human rights and governance in Ghana.
