The honorable Member of Parliament (MP) for the Assin South constituency in the Central region, Rev John Ntim Fordjour has urged all Members of Parliament and all government officials who swore an oath of office with either the Holy Bible or the Holy Quran to jealously guard that promises.

According to him, all those Holy books and Ghana’s Laws, cultural values and traditional norms are all against homosexuality hence the need for all especially those who swore to endeavor to live by their pledges to preserve the country for posterity.

He said these vehemently in protest against calls on Ghana by some individual for the decriminalisationof homosexuality which he described as unedifying and fundamentally unlawful.

The MP has therefore called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to rise in defence of the constitution and resist any attempt to pressureGhana to do otherwise against Godly legislation.
Speaking at a press conference on his personal accord as a citizen of the land, the Pastor/Lawmaker stated unequivocally that homosexuality, lesbianism, and bestiality are abominable acts that must be condemned.

“Without prejudice to the position of the Parliament of Ghana, the Government of Ghana, any religious body nor any political party on the subject of homosexuality, lesbianism and bestiality, the following views are being espoused as my personal position on the subject, premised on my deepest convictions and principles as a Christian, a Reverend Minister, a proud advocate of Jesus Christ and Legislator,” he said.

He observed that, in the Constitutional framework of Ghana, not only are the practices of homosexuality, lesbianism and bestiality unedifying, but they are also fundamentally unlawful.

According to him, whereas it was undeniable fact that we lived in a world that keeps evolving, it was of utmost importance that as a people we did everything possible to safeguard morals and values that defines our identity.

The Assin South lawmaker reminded all not to allow Globalization which is expected to augment the strengths and values of nation-states to compromise the cultural and moral values therein.
