There has been a lot of comments and public opinions about the LGBTQI+ group in Ghana. This minority group have managed to seize our attention and they demand a legal instrument that permits their actions, gatherings and operations in Ghana. However, a recent poll in Ghana revealed that over 93% of Ghanaians don’t tolerate anything about the group. Indeed, they want them out of the country in toto. However, the group has gotten some 18 learned people in the country to defend them. Again, the Western world is looking closely as things unfold in Ghana.
These 18 learned people are very powerful in the world of academia and have some impressive influence on society. There are some think Tanks in Ghana who are also against Ghana’s Parliament and Sam George’s anti-LGBTQI+ stand. But in all, the honourable Member of Parliament appears unperturbed by the gesture. He is solid in his opinion. On his Facebook timeline, he has written that he has learnt to love 3 things in this world; God, his country and his woman. There is no doubt that he loves these 3 things.
He even embarrassed America’s Cable News Network (CNN) news anchor Larry. Larry ignorantly asked the Member of Parliament why a Ghanaian must be imprisoned for over 10yrs for being homosexual. The Member of Parliament read the constitution to Larry and made it clear to him that according to the anti-LGBTQI+ bill, one commits a second-degree felony for being LGBTQI+. And the punishment for a second-degree felony is 5years imprisonment, not 10yrs.
Indeed, Sam George has proven that he is well-versed and intelligent on the LGBTQI+ matter. He has been praised by Ghanaians for such a brilliant and confident fight. Some Ghanaians have projected him to be President. They don’t mind voting for him. They love his verve and dedication to defend the desire of 93% of Ghanaians.
