The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack envoys from Europe propagating Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) rights in Ghana.
He said such ambassadors should be a given a 48-hour ultimatum to leave the shores of Ghana.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker made this call on the back of recent reports the European Union (EU) aided in the opening of an LGBT+ office in Accra and declaring its support for similar organizations.
The second term MP called on the Foreign Affairs Ministry as a matter of urgency to deport the European Union ambassadors who declared their unflinching support to the group if they are not ready to respect and comply to the laws that govern the country.
“The EU Commission rep should be given 48-hours to leave our country if he is not ready to respect our laws. You cannot have any foreign diplomat come to Ghana and disrespect the laws of our country because if we go to their country we are bound by their laws and the same applies here,” the MP said.
He continued: “We are becoming a joke if the EU has put up a tweet like this and after 6-days the EU rep is there drinking tea with government officials and doing business with them.
“Will the EU dare put up a tweet against any foreign democracy and not be answering questions by now?” he quizzed.
Sam George stated further that, “For me, I’m an ultra-nationalist on this matter, the laws and customary rites of this country must be respected by everyone and anybody.”
