Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George has insisted that Ghana will not face any economic sanctions should the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill be passed into law.
Referencing several countries that have draconian laws against homosexuals yet still thriving, he said fears that Ghana could face economic sanctions are misplaced.
“Look, there are 195 countries in the world; only 33 have legalised homosexuality nothing is going to happen to Ghana,” he assured.
He added, “Ghana is a Sovereign nation. We will hold our own; they need us as much as we need them”.
“Uganda passed a more draconian bill; in fact, Uganda’s bill was tagged ‘kill the gays’ because it actually sentenced them to death for homosexuality.
“Uganda passed this bill; it’s been almost 6 years, nothing has happened to Uganda. Uganda is still standing on its feet; it is benefitting from COVAX just like Ghana, so the whole hysteria that is being created by proponents of LGBTQ,” he stated.
“Nigeria passed a stronger bill with more punitive measures for homosexuals in 2014; Nigeria is there nobody did anything to Nigeria, nobody will do anything to Ghana,” he added.
