Haruna Iddrisu, the MP for Tamale North and Ranking Member on the Appointments Committee of Parliament, has added his voice to calls to shoot down all attempts by the LGBTQ+ community to receive recognition in the country.

According to him, the act is purely dehumanizing and should not be encouraged or accepted.

“Where I stand, I find it immoral and dehumanizing and not in the context of any Ghanaian culture for a man to be relating to a man and a woman, relating to a woman. I haven't seen a male goat or a male cow running after a male goat or a male cow," he said.

He made these comments while asking the minister-designate for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Awal Mohammed, what his stance was on the subject, seeing that he is a staunch Muslim and a person who will be overseeing the cultural aspects of the country when approved as a minister.

This was during the vetting of the nominee at the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Thursday, February 25, 2021.
