Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament Aaron Mike Oquaye says he will resign if lawmakers introduce a bill to legalise homosexuality in Ghana.
“If anybody should bring such a thing to parliament and I have to preside over that I will rather resign than subscribe to this delusion,” Mr Oquaye told Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana current affairs programme on Thursday.
There are currently no plans to introduce such a bill but gay activists having been asking MPs to consider it.
UK’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, recently urged Commonwealth nations including Ghana to overhaul “outdated” anti-gay laws and said the UK “deeply regrets” its role in the legacy of violence and discrimination.
