Member of Parliament for Nigo-Prampram Samuel Nartey George, one of the sponsors of the anti-gay bill when it was passed on Wednesday, February 28, 2024 in an interview pointed out that he hopes the speaker’s outfit would pass on the passed bill to the President as early as possible and hopes “the President would be a Man of his words and give assent to the Bill.”

According to him the president in the Eastern Region told the Anglican Church LGBTQ+ would not be established under his watch when he gave assurance to the clergy, and would not tolerate anything to do with LGBTQ+.

“The Bill has been passed, we expect the President to walk his talk, we the sponsors, we are very grateful to the media and we would continue to work with you in the sensitization of the public as sponsors”

Sam George further pointed out that the media has been their partners as sponsors of the bill and thanked the media for carrying their voices and taking the nation along and per the CDD research ninety three percent (93) of Ghanaians support the bill.

He also commended his colleagues from both sides of the House particularly the former Majority Leader Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for his role to fine tune the Bill with his amendment, same with the Deputy Educational Minister Ntim Fordjour  and the former Minister of Environment Science and Technology Dr Afriyie.
