The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu, has instructed the Business Committee of the House to include the anti-gay bill in the agenda for next week’s discussions.

Originally, the deliberation on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill was scheduled for this week. However, Sam Nartey George, one of the bill’s sponsors, discovered that two lawsuits have been filed against it—one at the Supreme Court and the other at the High Court.

During the presentation of the explanatory memorandum in the business statement schedule for the following week, the First Deputy Speaker and Member of Parliament for Bekwai constituency announced that there will be a debate on the bill, tentatively scheduled for either Tuesday or Thursday.

Nevertheless, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, has consistently voiced strong opposition to the actions of homosexuals in the nation.

During his recent visit to the northern region of Ghana commemorating three decades of parliamentary democracy, the former legislator conveyed to reporters his resolute stance, stating that he would choose death over witnessing the legalization of activities involving gays and lesbians.
