The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has given Parliament the end of October 2022 to pass the anti-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) bill into law. Reverend Professor Paul Frimpong-Manso, President of the Council, who made the call, said failure by Parliament to pass the law by the said date would see the GPCC take various actions against the legislature and government, including hitting the streets with its members to demonstrate. He sounded the warning at a farewell service held for Reverend Dr Emmanuel Barrigah, the immediate past General Secretary of the GPCC, in Accra. The Council, however, inducted into office Apostle Immanuel Nii Okuley Tetteh as the new General Secretary of the GPCC. Rev Frimpong-Manso said the GPCC was in full support of the bill and that Parliament must speed up its passage into law for Ghanaians. He cautioned that the Council would not hesitate to call its members to the street to demonstrate if Parliament failed to pass the bill into law by the close of October.
