JUST INN: Get to Know the MP fighting for the right of LGBTQI+ in Ghana.
Ningo Prampram member of parliament Sam George has made a statement on behalf of members of anti LGBTQI group.
Speaking on the floor of parliament in a debate with relations to whether or not LGBTQI is legal, Sam George in his explanation said, LGBTQI in Ghana is nothing short of an open attack on the laws of the country and such unfortunate and irresponsible conduct cannot be overlooked and treated with quick glance.
He spoke with respect to the sovereignty of the country and noted that it must be respected and protected.
According the MP, any action aimed at promoting LGBTQ in Ghana is illegal and a clear breach of the constitution and criminal codes.
He reiterated that the Ghanaian constitution is totally against the activities of LGBTQ and any attempt to depart from the current position of the law on homosexuality will be a unprecedented assault on our traditions,cultural and customs as Ghanaians.
However, in a reaction with the group of MPs who issued a statement against the activities of the LGBTQ+ in the country,
Bawko member of parliament, Hon. Mahama Ayariga has described as illegal and unconstitutional the closure of the LGBTQ+ community space in Accra.
Mr.Ayariga argued that the act of unnatural carnal knowledge must be separated from the constitutionally guaranteed freedom of association.
The debate has been raised in Ghana for weeks with religious groups calling on parliament to pass an antigay legislation.
However Mahama Ayariga has opposed to what he believe is an attempt to infringe on the freedom of association.
