LGBTQI billboard on Tema motorway pulled down after Sam George’s threats

On the Accra-Tema Motorway, city officials have taken down a billboard ostensibly supporting LGBTQI activities.

Sam George, the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, revealed this in a Facebook post.

After a media engagement with local officials, he said the billboard was taken down.

Sam George had given officials a 24-hour deadline to remove the billboard, which he regarded as illegal.

“Over the weekend, our attention was called to an infraction that contradicts Articles 11 and 26 of the Ghanaian Constitution, which speak of Ghana’s cultural sovereignty. We saw that a billboard encouraging LGBTQ events has been erected alongside the highway.”

“As sponsors of the bill before Parliament and as members of Parliament who represent Ghanaians’ aspirations and will,” the MP said, “we have deemed it important to show up here today to register our strongest displeasure, discomfort, and abhorrence for this unholy, unculturable, and untraditional advertisement that has been put up on this road.”

Sam George and eight other members of Parliament are proposing an Anti-LGBTQI Bill on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights, which stipulates that persons of the same sex who engage in sexual conduct face up to ten years in prison.
