Calls for Ghana to condone LGBTQ+ rights have been fiercely rebuffed and a recently drafted anti-gay legislation, is set to criminalize anybody who offers any form of support for LGBTQ+ people and pass out stern punishment those who indulge in the practice in the country. This has triggered wild discussions and arguments on social media but the bill seem to be countenanced by most Ghanaians who believe LGBTQ+ is abominable and shouldn't be entertained. However, sympathisers of LGBTQ+ have decried the draconian bill and have suggested to the parliament to subject it to amendments before it becomes a law.
Sam Dzata George, who happens to be one of the renowned proponent of anti-gay rights in Ghana has publicly endorsed and commended the propounders of the bill, nonetheless it has triggered attacks from some LGBTQ+ supporters including Ghanaian songstress, Sister Derby, YouTube blogger, Kwadwo Sheldon and British politician, Seb Dance. The unfazed and gallant Ningo-Prampram MP went ahead to serve them with rational and thought-provoking replies in a heated twitter argument which amazed netizens.
Take a look at all Sam George's tweets as he replies LGBTQ+ supporters.
Early on, some unknown foes had lodged a complaint to Twitter to take down one of Sam George's LGBTQ+ comments, but the complaint couldn't be substantiated by the management of the platform and decided not to take any action on the reports.
