The Supreme Court has dismissed an application seeking to injunct the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, from continuing with the consideration of the anti-LGBTQ bill.

The bill which seeks to stop LGBTQ activities in the country has been on the floor of parliament for deliberation.

Many activists as well as members of the LGBTQ community have stood against this as they see it as a violation of human rights.

However, Chiefs as well as other stakeholders have decided that LGBTQ activities in the country are abominations as they go against the customary laws and the will of God. 

They also believe it is morally unacceptable and have all joined in championing the course to pass the anti- LGBTQ bill into law.

This led to the filing of an application by a researcher by name Dr. Amanda Odoi  seeking the Supreme Court to declare the action of parliament to pass the bill as the breach of the constitution.

She applied for parliament to be injuncted from considering the bill.

However, the court presided over by Chief Justice, Gertrude Torkonoo have unanimously dismissed the application by the Researcher.
