General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has said the tradition of the party does not condone the activities of LGBTQ+.
According to him, the tradition of the opposition NDC rather embraces such people and therefore they should be the ones answering questions and providing clarity on their position.
Addressing the Eastern Regional delegates of the party on Saturday October 17, he said “For us NPP, we are a Centre-Right political party, our values are clear, we believe in the family system, we believe in chieftaincy, we believe in proper customs practices, we believe in freedoms, we believe in protection of human rights.
“So don’t ask us whether we accept LGBTQI or not, we are not supposed to be asked that question. The right people to ask that question are NDC members on their party because they are a Centre-Left political party. Centre-Left political parties throughout the world, in the US it is when they come to power that they promote such practice. So let (NPP) not bother ourselves to talk about this. We shall not condone this practice and we will not accept this practice.”
