Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George says he was moved to act after he saw the LGBTQ activists open an office in Accra together with some ambassadors.
Speaking on Citi TV, the MP who has become the face of an anti-LGBTQ+ bill said he immediately made a phone call to President Akufo-Addo to shut down the office.
He further made a call to the Minister of Foreign Affairs to sanction those ambassadors wondering f they could have done that if they were in an Arab country.
“Seeing High Commissioners, ambassadors, Reps of the EU at that function in blatant violation of the Vienna Convention really, really ticked me off. And for me, I made two calls immediately, I made a call to the president to shut down the office and the Minister of Foreign Affairs to sanction those ambassadors. As far as I am concerned, publicly I am not aware of any sanctions.”
“But thankfully the president immediately acted, sent national security, shut down the place but then we needed to send a strong message, none of these ambassadors would have tried this if their host country was Saudi Arabia or any of the Gulf States?” he quizzed.
