An LGBTQI billboard on the Tema highway was pulled down after Sam George’s threats.

An LGBTQI billboard on the Tema highway was 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 issued a 24-hour ultimatum to authorities to pull down the billboard, which he described as illegal.

“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 has 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,” the MP had said.

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.

If the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021 is signed into law, various acts of support for the LGBTQ+ community will be criminalized.

The bill is currently under committee in Parliament, where politicians are holding public hearings.
