The Minority Caucus in Parliament has issued a stern warning against any further delays in approving the bill concerning human sexual rights and Ghanaian family values, commonly referred to as the anti-gay bill.

Last week, Deputy Majority Leader Alexander Afenyo-Markin initiated a motion for a second consideration of the bill, proposing an amendment to replace imprisonment with community service. This led to the ongoing amendment of approximately thirteen clauses in the bill today.

Minority Chief Whip Governs Agbodza has urged Afenyo-Markin to conclude consultations on his proposed amendments before Wednesday, emphasizing that the Minority will not tolerate any actions prolonging the process beyond that deadline.

“We should also be clear in our minds that we will not unduly always find a reason to postpone the progress of this bill to another day. Because, as we said the other day, everything that he [Afenyo-Markin] has raised in his proposal, he took about an hour here speaking about it, but he keeps giving reasons why we cannot deal with it. So we are giving him ample time to do the consultation because there will be no more filibustering after Wednesday.”
