The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) is demanding for the immediate arrest and prosecution of persons behind the opening of an office for Lesbians, Gays Bisexuals, Transgender and Queer Intersex (LGBTQI) persons in the country.
It also wants all foreign diplomats who allegedly took part in the opening of that office in Ghana to be summoned to explain why they violated the sovereignty of Ghana.
A statement issued and signed by the President of GPCC, Rev. Prof Paul Frimpong-Manso said government must not yield to endorsing the activities of LGBTQI, which is a potential threat to peace.
“Close down without delay the alleged LGBTQI office in Ghana and immediately arrest and prosecute the individuals or groups behind the alleged opening of this new office in Ghana for breach of the law and potential threat to peace.
“Summon all foreign diplomats who allegedly participated in the opening of the LGBTQI offices in Ghana to explain their violation of the sovereignty of Ghana,” the statement read.
This call is in line with an earlier call by the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference for the immediate closure of the newly opened community centre for LGBTQI advocates in Accra.
The Catholic bishops also want President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to voice his clear position on homosexuality in the country.
