There must be more psychiatric hospitals included in the 111 districts hospitals to make room for LGBT “fools” to be admitted, Paul Kwabena Yandoh has suggested.
The Asokwa Constituency Treasurer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in an interview on Wontumi TV which was monitored by Wontumionline.com, stated that the time has come for the LGBT group to know that they are powerless in Ghana where majority frown upon their sexual acts.
“We must have more hospitals to accommodate the fools springing up in our society. We must not let them feel proud they have money. They can’t fight anybody. The agenda 111 hospital must have more psychiatric hospitals”, he recommended.
Currently there is an anti-LGBT bill before Parliament.
The document known as the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, seeks to criminalise the activities of LGBTQI+ and individuals and organisations that advocate or promote the activity in the country.
Paul Yandoh commented on the development urging the MPs to ensure the bill is passed into law to stop the LGBT group from gaining grounds in Ghana.
Aside the NPP man, some top clergymen and Islamic clerics have presented memos to the House’s Committee of Constitution and Legal Affairs on Wednesday, in support of the bill.
The Church of Pentecost has declared its readiness to vote out any political party that stands against the passage of the bill.
However, a series of memoranda, which oppose the legislation, have also been presented to the Committee.
The sponsors of the memoranda describe the bill as an endorsement of state-sponsored violence against minority groups and an infringement on their human rights.
