The Vice President’s office has yet to release an official statement responding to the Muslim community’s call.

It remains to be seen how Vice President Dr. Bawumia will navigate the delicate balance between his religious convictions and the diverse perspectives on LGBTQ+ rights within Ghanaian society.
