The Kontihene for Sunyani Traditional Council, Nana Oboaman Bofotia Boamponsem says government must not exchange the nation’s integrity with so-called money by succumbing to pressure from European Union to legalize lesbianism, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex life.
He stressed that, his outfit will not hesitate to banish LGBTQI from Sunyani stool lands.
LGBTQI activities have been the most discussed issue in the country currently after actors of such immorality opened their office in the country, with the intention to extend it to other regions; which has received public backlash from the civil societies, Christian organizations and other religious bodies.
The Kontihene of Sunyani Traditional Area, Nana Oboaman Bofotia said “ it is better for the country to stay in poverty than to legalize this immoral act in the country”.
He emphasized that, the government must rule the country in accordance with the norms, values, customs and traditions of the people therefore such activities must be banished by the laws of the land and should not be legalized under any circumstance.
In an Akan adage, he stressed that “You can’t sell one of your children to cater for the others”, therefore called on Ghanaians to vote against any political party that seems to promote it.
Moreover, such acts are highly against God Almighty and the gods of Ghanaian lands and for that matter, if these indecent practices are officially accepted, the wrath of God Almighty would be on Ghanaians.
He added, every country has its set of rules making it sovereign so why should foreign culture and practices be compulsory for us?
In an instance, UK forbids by law to practise polygamy and Ghana is by law allowed to marry one and more opposite sex so, they should stay with their LGBTQI practices based on their cultural and other beliefs.
