The Z O Hunter Ministerial Associates, a religious organisation has threatened to seek an injunction to prevent the upcoming Lesbians Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) conference from being held in Ghana.

The regional conference of the LGBT community is scheduled to be held in the country from 27-31 July 2020.

A statement signed by the Chairman of Z O Hunter Ministerial Associates, Apostle Dr Z O Hunter, noted that the scheduled conference is aimed at the “introduction of homosexuality” in the country and reminded the “government that the agenda is against our culture.”

The ministry, therefore, called on other religious groups such as “The Christian Council, the Peace Council, the Charismatic Bishop Council, the Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the Traditional Council, the National House of Chiefs, the Regional House of Chiefs, the Islamic Council, the Africa Indigenous Council” to counter the agenda of homosexuality in the country.

It further called on members and the Speaker of Parliament to speak against it.

“As a Reverend Minister and Speaker of Parliament, you will agree with us that Leviticus 18:22-23 frowns on that,” the statement said adding that if nothing is done, they will “march and protest to Parliament and Jubilee House and also go to Court and seek for an injunction on the said matter.”
