The opposition Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Hon. Sam George says his political future has been threatened after he was on live television condemning LGBTQ advocates and their financiers in the country last week Friday.
According to the lawmaker, after making his comments on TV on Friday, February 19, 2021, he received a call from an unknown person the next day who said they [LGBTQ people] will use their financial power to ensure that he [Sam George] losses the next parliamentary primaries election he may be contesting in his constituency so that he would not be able to have a speaking voice in the country again.
This, he says got him more irritated and has since decided to go all out to fight and speak vehemently against the activities of the LGBTQ people and those who are funding them to push forward their ‘evil’ and ‘criminal’ agenda.
“You know when I spoke first last week Friday on a TV network, over the weekend; I got a call and that’s what has irritated me and made me go all out that let’s have an all out fight.
Someone told me that look, do I [Sam George] know how rich the LGBTQI community is and that they will bring money and make sure that me, the platform that I have as an MP that I think gives me the right to speak; they will meet me at my primaries,” he revealed yesterday, February 25, 2021 on GhOne Television.
Hon. Sam George is one of the numerous Ghanaians, including other colleague lawmakers who has been calling for a total crackdown and a stricter government action on LGBTQI+ advocacy and activities in the country.
He recently called and still calling for the heads and expulsion of the Australian Ambassador to Ghana, Andrew Barnes and the Danish Ambassador from the country for gracing the opening ceremony of an LGBTQI+ office in Accra.
