The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has expressed his commitment to the anti-gay bill.
According to him, although the practice of LGBTQ+ is quite prevalent in his area, he fully supports the bill to deal with persons that engage in it.
Speaking on Joy news, Nii Lante said LGBT can be practiced in the bedroom and not go beyond that.
“I support it 100%. A lot of my constituents support it although that behaviour is pervasive in my area. I have been chosen as the leader of my people so anything that is an affront to the norms and traditions of my people, I will talk about it.”
“My interest is not just because I want people arrested. My interest is to stop this negative and antiquated behaviour. I do not know which Ghanaian culture is LGBTQ. It is an attitude people pick up. I do not know where they pick it up from because it is not part of our culture. I am saying you can do that in your bedroom, but we will not allow that into our society” the legislator said.
