Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Samuel Nartey George has thanked all MPs, Speaker of the House Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin and his two deputies after the anti-LGBTQ bill was taken through second reading on Wednesday, July 5, 2023.

According to him this is a bill that enjoys the support of both the Majority and Minority members of the House.
“We stand united to say Ghanaian values are nonnegotiable, we will not compromise on the Ghanaian value system, we are going to stand united as a nation and we call on the Ghanaian people to support us as their members of parliament as we pass this bill”.

At a media briefing with members of the parliamentary press corps he noted that they are aware of the attacks and threats that has been made to sponsors of the bill; we are a sovereign nation and will stand for what is a Ghanaian and we serve notice that carrying out those threats will be a high enterprise in Ghana.

“We will call on Ghanaians to boycott every business in Ghana from those countries issuing threats, so if any government from any country thinks they will sanction any of the sponsors of the bill or the speaker after this bill is passed they should be prepared to pack up and leave our country”.

And further indicated that, we will also instigate public outcry against their business in our country if they work here they should respect our laws.

When we visit their countries we respect their laws and until we see them carry out those threats against Southern Arabia, Russia and China then they should stay off Ghana. Under the guidance of the Speaker, we will go into the consideration, we expect the consideration stage to be a very swift one despite there are amendment it’s a product of agreement between the sponsors and the committee, he added.
