In recent news, the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has expressed concern that if President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo fails to sign the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill into law after Parliament passes it, it would be politically disastrous for him.
The bill, also known as the Promotion of Proper Sexual Human Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, seeks to criminalize any form of advocacy or expression of LGBTQ+ rights in Ghana.
Mr. George stated emphatically that if the President refuses to sign this bill in question, then two-thirds of the members of Parliament would vote in favor of the bill to be passed into law.
Failure to do so, according to him, would be an indictment on the government. Speaking to the press the 38-year-old University of London alumnus emphasized that it would be politically suicidal for the President to fail to approve the bill.
He further stated that it would mark the sound of a dead mill on his abysmal government, and that would be the beginning of the collapse of his government and his legacy.
