We’ve significant numbers contributing a lot to Ghana’s development -LGBQT+ Advocate



Despite the backlash on persons engaged in acts seen as improper family values in Ghana and a call for criminalizing such activities, the LGBTQI+ community says, it has a significant number of Ghanaians.

According to leaders of the group, despite the stigmatization against members of the LGBTQI+, it is undeniable they contribute a lot to the growth of the country in various sectors.

Founder and Director of LGBT+ Rights Ghana, Mr. Kofi Donkor disclosed that a lot of people are involved in the act than the public thinks and warned against people perceiving them to be a handful.

He said, there are many people from different shades of life including many influential Ghanaians that are part of them yet are not known to the public though he knows them personally.

“We are many here, when I am sitting by my TV and watching stuff on Ghanaian TV stations, I see lots of people who appear on it being part of us but people don’t know. We are contributing a lot to the country”. He revealed on Kumasi-based Ultimate Fm

Mr. Donkor indicated that LGBTQI+ people are doing so well to help society and must be appreciated not shunned and stigmatized as being witnessed in the country.

“I am a researcher and a public health practitioner, my research is helping many Ghanaians who are not gay but they do not know. People need to appreciate us, we are not bad. We were created just like you” he said.

He also fumed over how critics continue to compare their sexual preferences to animals indicating that it is never based on research but mere perception.

“It is funny people make comparisons, that animals are not gay as they claim they don’t see male animals having sex. How can someone do that comparison? Are they in the animal world? How many animals have they studied to come to such baseless conclusions? People should allow people to be”, he begged.

“We are not animals and it is wrong to compare us to animals. We have rights just like any human being and we must be treated right”, he stressed.

He questioned the force at which some Ghanaians are opposing the LGBTQI+ community and its activities, especially MP for Ningo-Prampram Sam Nartey George.

“I hear Sam George speak against us all the time, If he had a son or daughter who wanted to express his sexuality differently would he be doing what he is doing? If he feels he is a lion, he cannot be a lion to us. He has been called Dzata Dzata Dzata and he wants to act his name, not on us. He should go into the forest and do that” he said.

Ghana’s anti-LGBTQi bill is named Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values and it is currently in parliament and yet to be passed.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has always come under pressure anytime the subject is being discussed as some Ghanaians believe his position on the subject is always flip-flopping.

#NPPDecides: 95% of NPP MPs support Bawumia – Annoh-Dompreh



The Majority Chief Whip in Parliament, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, has said that approximately 95 percent of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament have expressed their support for Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the upcoming Presidential election.

Over 200,000 delegates from across the country are expected to participate in the elections scheduled for Saturday, November 4, 2023.

The exercise, which will elect a flagbearer to represent the party in the 2024 General Elections, will take place in every constituency across all 16 regions of the country.

While expressing optimism about the victory of Dr. Bawumia as the flagbearer of the NPP in an interview, the legislator said: “We know it is a foregone decision, Dr Bawumia is going to win hands down. It used to be around 80 percent. Now it’s moved higher. We are now doing like 95 percent of MPs who clearly believe that we should rally behind the Vice President. We are now hovering around 95 percent. It will even get better on the D-Day, and I think it’s looking extremely good. Our focus now is to ensure that after Saturday, we progress into a united front,” the Nsawam Adoagyiri MP said.

The NPP is gearing up for its presidential primaries on Saturday, November 4.

The four aspirants contesting the flagbearer position have signed an undertaking not to resign from the party if any of them loses the primary on Saturday.

The decision was reached at a meeting between the National Council of Elders and the aspirants.

Dr. Bawumia is the frontrunner in the race, but he faces stiff competition from Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong.

A recent poll by the Institute of Research, Innovation & Development at Kumasi Technical University found that Bawumia stands a greater chance of winning the upcoming NPP flagbearer race, as he will most likely secure an overwhelming victory in eight regions.

The poll found that 71.1% of NPP delegates believe that Bawumia has a higher chance of breaking the eight-year cycle, while 26.8% of them stated that Kennedy Agyapong stands a better chance.

The other two contestants include the former Agriculture Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and former MP for Mampong, Francis Addai-Nimoh.

Xavier Sosu advocates for modernization of Ghana’s criminal justice system



Human rights lawyer and Member of Parliament for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, has proposed a reformation of Ghana’s criminal justice system, describing it as archaic.

“Criminal Justice is reforming all over the world and the people who gave us these laws have long reformed these laws and have moved away… So why are we still putting them on our statutes?” Mr. Sosu said.

He further mentioned that keeping these old statutes without reforming them is a form of legal colonialism.

“This is a form of legal neocolonialism because we are carrying on the colonial baggage and unfortunately we are not looking at the peculiar circumstances of our case,” Sosu added

This comes in response to concerns about the amendment of the country’s sentencing regime, including the passage of the alternative sentencing bill.

In an interview with Citi News, the legislator urged the legislature to be guided by the justice systems of developed countries to expedite the passage of the bill.

Lady dies during ‘sex marathon’ with boyfriend



A young woman has reportedly lost her life during an intimate encounter with her boyfriend in Ilorin, Nigeria. 

The incident has led to the arrest of the boyfriend, a middle-aged man who operates a barbing salon in the area.

According to reports, the said incident occurred at a guest house located in the Temidire community, Offa Garage area of Ilorin on Monday.

Sources in the community say the couple had checked into the guest house for what was supposed to be a leisurely outing.

However, things took a horrifying turn as the evening unfolded. There are unconfirmed reports that the man may have been under the influence of drugs, seemingly in an attempt to impress his girlfriend, before the situation took a dire and unexpected turn.

The tragic chain of events reportedly began when the young woman became fatigued during their intimate encounter, eventually losing consciousness. It was at this point that she became unresponsive and tragically passed away. The man, realizing the gravity of the situation, immediately raised the alarm, drawing the attention of the guest house staff.

The staff swiftly reacted by rushing the young lady to a nearby hospital in a desperate attempt to save her life. Regrettably, medical professionals at the hospital confirmed her untimely demise.

The owner of the guest house, in compliance with the law, promptly reported the incident to the Police ‘A’ Division in Ilorin. As a result, the middle-aged man was apprehended by the authorities.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Okasanmi Ajayi, affirmed the incident and emphasised that a comprehensive investigation was currently underway to determine the exact circumstances that led to the young lady’s tragic death.
