Speaker Alban Bagbin has said Ghana will not adopt Uganda’s strict legislative measure against the activities of LGBTQ in the country. Uganda has made it illegal to practice gay, lesbian etc in the country by passing the Anti-gay bill. Offenders are to be prosecuted and in some instances sentenced to life. Reacting to the news on the back of rumours surrounding the AntiGya Bill already in Ghana’s parliament, Speaker Bagbin has told the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs committee of Parliament not to be intimidated by anyone regarding this Bill.
