Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Sam Nartey George, has responded to a pro-LGBTQ+ stance posted by Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko on social media.
Mr Otchere-Darko, on Thursday evening, tweeted that despite having respect for Ghana’s value systems, he was against the anti-gay bill and was not shy to say so.
He was only reiterating a position he has made public in the last months.
“I am against the anti-gay bill & not shy to say so. I am a proud Ghanaian who cherishes all that is good about our value systems, including tolerance. And, I will defend the right of minorities everywhere. I have the courage and a sense of justice to disagree with the majority,” his tweet read.
Hours later, the MP, who is the lead promoter of the Bill, quoted Mr Otchere-Darko’s tweet and also reiterated his opposition to same-sex relations, likening his dislike to corruption, nepotism, and despotism.
He assured him that despite his opposition and open support for the gay community, the anti-gay Bill that is properly known as, ‘The Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021,’ will be passed come what may.
