MEMO AGAINST ANTI – LGBTQI BILL WILL WOEFULLY FAIL  NII MENSAH DZANYƆMO

The Kwabenya Musuku manhene, Nii Mensah Dza Nyomo I who is also the PRO of Kwabenya Traditional council says he is not perturbed by the memorandum from 15 renowned legal, academicians and activists challenging the legislation that seeks to fully criminalise LGBTQI activities in Ghana.

Speaking in a press conference today at Kwabenya, Nii Mensah argued that the memo, which said the bill was a slap in the face of Ghana’s constitution and democracy, lacked merit.

Coming on the back of an Afrobarometer survey released by the Centre for Democratic Development showing that only 7 percent of Ghanaians are tolerant of persons of same-sex relationships, Nii Mensah Dza Nyomo also said arguments in the memo from the 15 persons would not be accepted by the public.

He added that the constitution is clear that your rights are not absolute, there are limits what they fail to understand.
The memo which was signed by the likes of Professor Kofi Gyimah-Boadi, Dr. Rose Kutin-Mensah, Professor H. Kwasi Prempeh, Professor Audrey Gadzekpo, Professor Kwame KariKari, Akoto Ampaw, and Professor Raymond Atuguba, was in response to Parliament’s call for written memos on the anti-LGBTQI Bill.
