According to Mr. Bagbin, the nation would not legalize the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI) activities in Ghana because is an abomination.

“The issue of the LGBTQI+ that is something that we see as an abomination. It is something that we abhor and therefore we will continue to go according to our culture,” Mr. Bagbin said.

“We definitely will not want to go to Europe and try to impose on them something like polygamy, we will not do that.”

Reacting to the strong words from the Speaker, Mr. Andrews said Australia was not trying to promote LGBT activities in Ghana.

“We are not trying to promote or encourage LGBTQI+ in Ghana. We do believe that sometimes culture is going to adapt to change,” he clarified.
