Samuel Nartey George who is known popularly as Sam George is a Ghanaian politician and the keen campaigner of the anti LGBTQ bill in Ghana.

Hon. Samuel Nartey George, the Member of Parliament ( MP) for Ningo-Prampram came out of his interview with CNN unscathed and with an enhanced reputation as a keen defender of the ‘culture and values’ of Ghanaians in relation to the anti-LGBTQ+ bill he presented to Parliament.
Ghanaian social media space is filled with praise for Sam George who mounted a fierce defense of the decision by some MPs to sponsor the bill that seeks to criminalize homosexuality in the country.
A seeming attempt by Kenyan-born CNN reporter Larry Madowo to have Sam George choke on his own bill backfired as the legislator, in the estimation of most social media viewers distinguished himself and addressed the issues effectively. Hon. Sam George displayed high level of intelligence and he proved to everyone he understands what he is doing.
Whiles showering praises on Sam George for articulating his position soundly with well-researched information on the topic, some users criticized Larry Madowo for not preparing effectively for the interview.
They observed that Madowo was not well abreast with the content of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill which formed the basis of the interview.
A tweet by the CNN reporter on the interview was hijacked with words of praise for Sam George and bashing of Madowo for his perceived bias as well as some words he used on Sam George.
