Sam George gives authorities 24-hour ultimatum to pull down LGBTQI billboard

Sam George, the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, has given officials a 24-hour deadline to remove a billboard on the Accra-Tema Motorway that allegedly encourages LGBTQI activities.

“We are requesting that the Inspector General of Police, in collaboration with the MCE for the region, conduct out the required security measures within the next 24 hours to guarantee that this billborad, which is an affront to the Constitution, is taken down.”

The encouragement of the practice through outdoor advertising, according to one of the sponsors of the Anti-LGBTQI Bill presently before the House, is prohibited.

“Over the weekend, our attention was drawn to an illegality that flies in the face of the Constitution of Ghana – Articles 11 and 26 which talks about Ghana’s cultural sovereignty. We noticed that a billboard promoting the activities of the LGBTQ activities have been mounted along the motorway.

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