Bagbin, Akufo-Addo In Unhealthy Kindergarten Tit-For-Tat — Atta Kyea 

Samuel Atta Akyea, who is a ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) legislator for Abuakwa South has chided Speaker of Parliament over his tango with Jubilee House. 

According to the former Works and Housing Minister, the whole episode is like a Kindergarten tit for tat which is unhealthy for statecraft. 

He said there was the need for parliament to have found a mature way of handling the issue if it faulted Secretary to the President Asante Bediatuo for his letter.

“If we are not careful, we will reduce statecraft to, if you like, the kindergarten level of tit for tat. Granted the President’s Secretary’s letter to parliament was terrible, the matured way of handling something that’s very bad is not to say is that what you’ve done, I’ll do the same to you,” he said.

“I’m very sad about this tit-for-tat, it’s not good for statecraft. There’s a way that we could have looked at it and would have avoided all that,” he added. 

Parliament voted to pass a controversial bill to severely restrict LGBTQ rights, in a move that has been condemned by rights activists here in Ghana and abroad.

A coalition of religious and traditional leaders sponsored the legislation that is favoured by most lawmakers and that passed in parliament.

The bill would punish those who take part in LGBTQ sexual acts, as well as those who promote the rights of gay, lesbian or other non-conventional sexual or gender identities with time in prison.

Akufo-Addo declined assenting to the bill to become law until a legal challenge on it at the Supreme Court is resolved.
