Samuel Nartey George, a member of parliament for Ningo-Prampram and one of the bill’s backers, has stated that certain foreign schools that include LGBTQI in their curricula would face sanctions.
Mr. Sam George stated sanctions would be applied to any institution that supports LGBTQ+ actions in Ghana while speaking on the floor of the parliament on Wednesday.
“There are schools in Ghana that are already starting to incorporate CSE and LGBTQ+ components into their daily operations. No school in Ghana can operate outside the laws of the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES), despite what they may claim, so Sam George warned. “Those schools should take notice that the Ministry of Education will be fully informed of their activities, and sanctions will be applied accordingly,” he said.
In a previous statement, Sam George asserted that his opposition to LGBTQI has unfairly placed him on a money laundering list, making it challenging for him to make financial transactions when going overseas.
Sam George gave examples of his own experiences, such as how blacklisting prevented him from opening a bank account at a UK institution.
He also recounted situations in which he was prevented from exchanging money in several nations because his name was on the list. He also talked about the difficulties he has while travelling with his diplomatic passport, recalling instances in which he was stopped and given a thorough check. He claims that those actions have just given him greater confidence.
