GPCC Expresses Gratitude and Calls for Presidential Assent on Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) extends heartfelt gratitude and joy in response to the recent passage of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values bill by Ghana’s Parliament.

 The Council commends the private sponsors of the Bill, the Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, and all contributors who played diverse roles in the extensive three-year journey leading to this accomplishment.

The Communique signed by the General Secertary Apostle Immanuel N. O. Tettey recognizes the challenging task of navigating varied positions on the Bill’s contents from different interest groups.

The Communique noted that, the contributions and deliberations of Members of Parliament (MPs) are particularly appreciated, enriching the content of the Bill in various ways. Adding that,  the Council acknowledges the Attorney General’s office for its objective critique and valuable contributions, which have contributed to clarifying and strengthening different aspects of the Bill.

A special mention goes to the Right Honorable Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, whose unwavering commitment to the passage of the Bill from the beginning deserves acknowledgment. The GPCC applauds Speaker Bagbin’s steadfastness and forthrightness in this matter.

While celebrating the passage of the Bill, the GPCC acknowledges that the final step involves receiving Presidential assent to become law in Ghana. Recognizing Ghana’s unique cultural and family values, the GPCC respectfully urges the President of the Republic to grant assent to the Bill. This step is crucial in upholding the nation’s long-standing religious and cultural family value system, aligning with the earnest expectations of most Ghanaians.

As a Faith-Based Organization (FBO), the GPCC aligns with other similar religious bodies in expressing gratitude for the diverse contributions that have led to the passage of the Bill. The Council remains hopeful for a positive response from the President to bring finality to this significant advocacy.
