Amidst the ongoing public discourse on the anti-LGBTQ Bill before Parliament, two ministers have called on Ghanaians to protect the country’s cultural practices and resist any attempt to introduce foreign practices in the name of democracy and freedom of expression. Rev. Solomon Dzukpor of the Promised Word Int. Church in Agona Swedru and Apostle George Kyereh of the Apostle Kyereh Prayer Ministry in Gomoa Akropong, made the call during a recent public event.

The ministers stressed the need for Ghanaians to resist any behavior that undermines the country’s cultural values and practices, and urged citizens to stand up against any attempts to introduce foreign practices that go against the country’s cultural norms. They argued that cultural practices are essential for national identity and social cohesion, and must be preserved at all costs.

In addition, the ministers proposed the creation of a Second Chamber in Parliament dedicated to Traditional Rulers and Religious leaders to enable them to contribute to the legislative process. According to them, this would broaden the scope of national discourse and provide input from a cross-section of the society, rather than being limited to legal experts alone.

The issue of homosexuality remains a contentious topic in Ghana, with the majority of the population opposing its legalization. However, members of the Clergy have expressed concerns over the practice, citing not only health risks but also moral implications. They are continuing to speak out against the practice and advocate for the preservation of Ghanaian cultural values and practices.

For the most part, Ghanaians are proud of their rich cultural heritage and traditions, which have been passed down from generation to generation. The country’s culture is an essential part of its identity and has helped to shape its history and social fabric. It is therefore crucial that Ghanaians resist any attempts to introduce foreign practices that could undermine their cultural values and practices.

Furthermore, the call for a Second Chamber in Parliament for Traditional Rulers and Religious leaders is a welcome proposal that would enable a broader national discourse and facilitate input from a diverse range of voices. It is essential to have input from all segments of society to ensure that laws and policies are inclusive and take into account the views and concerns of all citizens.

In conclusion, the preservation of Ghana’s cultural practices and values is critical for national identity and social cohesion. Ghanaians must remain vigilant and resist any attempts to introduce foreign practices that could undermine their cultural heritage. The call for a Second Chamber in Parliament is also a positive step towards ensuring that all voices are heard and represented in the legislative process.
