Drobo Traditional Council Kicks Against LGBTQ+

The Omanhene of Drobo Traditional Area who also doubles as the Vice President of Bono Regional House of Chiefs, Okokyeredom Sakyi-Ako has waded into the calls suggesting to ban the activities of the LGBTQ+ in the country.

At a press conference held at his palace in Drobo, in the Jaman South Municipal of the Bono Region, Okokyeredom Sakyi-Ako did not mince words but cautioned Hon. William Okofo-Death, the MP for the Jaman South Constituency not step foot on their land should he vote against the bill seeking to ban the activities of the LGBTQ+ in the country.
 
To the chief, it is taboo among them and the MP being their representative in parliamentary should communicate the same in parliament and vote to support the bill banning the activities of these people.

Okokyeredom Sakyi-Ako again appealed to the government not to bow to Western pressure but should be resolute since the entire country is behind him to reject such an abominable act in Ghana.

The chief cautioned that, since their tradition and customs forbids such an act, anyone on their land who will be caught indulging in the same-sex act will be dealt with according to their traditions and customs to serve as a deterrent to other people in the area.
