H.K. Prempeh Incurs Wrath of Sam George For Allegedly Insulting MPs; Likely to be Hauled Before Privileges Committee



Ningo Prampram MP, Sam George, has threatened to haul the Executive Director of the Center for Democratic Development (CDD) Ghana before the Parliament’s Privileges Committee.

According to the lawmaker, Prof. Kwasi Prempeh passed insulting remarks against MPs during his presentation before Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional, Legal, and Parliamentary Affairs on Thursday.

The former law lecturer had expressed misgivings that the promotion of the Proper Human Sexual Rights Bill was a march towards totalitarianism and populism.

Prof H. Kwasi Prempeh said the thoughts expressed in the Bill were not original of the proponents since such discussions have been ongoing in various quarters for some time.

However, his comments did not sit well with some of the MPs, including the Ningo-Prampram MP, who is one of the sponsors of the BIll.

According to the lead sponsor of the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021, the comments are insulting and an attempt to mislead the House.

“You don’t lie to a Committee of Parliament. If he did say on tape, during his submission, which we heard him say, that these thoughts were not the original thoughts but the thoughts of other people we were representing, we will drag him to Parliament,” Sam George said on Joy FM’s Top Stories with Evans Mensah on Thursday.
