One of the proponents of the anti-LGBTQI+ bill, Samuel Nartey George, has revealed that some US groups tried to influence him to stop the campaign.
According to him, those groups offered him money in a bid to persuade him.
However, he said his involvement in the push for anti-LGBTQ legislation in the country is not influenced by money but by his conviction that LGBTQI+ activities are unacceptable.
He insisted such acts are against the cultural values of the country.
The Ningo-Prampram MP made the revelation in an interview with Accra-based Citi TV on Sunday, May 15.
He said the monetary considerations that were offered to him could have taken care of him in his entire life.
But said the offer re-energised him to him remain resolute in his quest.
“On this LGBTQ thing, if it was about making quick money, I could have been sorted out for life. Offers were made. I can show you messages from groups in San Francisco inviting me and saying let’s have a conversation that I should drop the bill. If that was what it was about for me, I could have gotten it sorted out, but you must have principles,” he said.
