Sam George Blames Attorney General for Delayed Passage of the Anti-LGBTQ+ Bill

sam george blames attorney general for delayed passage of the anti lgbtq+ bill

Ningo Prampram MP has blamed Attorney General Godfred Dame for the passage of the anti-LGBTQ+ Bill into law.

The bill which will criminalize the acts of LGBTQ+ in the country is yet to see the light of day is as still pending to be passed.

Sam George has said his side will ‘flex their muscles in response to the Attorney General’s efforts to impede passage of the bill.

He further described Godfred Dame as “a clog in the wheel of parliament”.


Headway Made so Far on the anti-LGBTQ+ bill

Sam George explained that the Bill could have progressed from the committee stage but that hasn’t been possible due to the Attorney General’s ways of dealing with it.

He recounts that a late memorandum received from Dame didn’t help the process and the Attorney General hasn’t been always available for a discourse on the subject which will expedite its passage.

Respectfully I will say the Attorney General is filibustering with the Bill. I will say the Attorney General is a clog in the wheel of parliament and he must take notice that we are taking keen notice of it and we will flex our muscle as parliamentarians very soon with him, Sam George reveled speaking on 3FM Sunrise Morning Show.

The MP added that the committee has done its due diligence with respect to all processes involved and hoping that the Attorney General will do same but that hasn’t been the case and they hope that Godfred Dame will be available on Tuesday February 21.

We will address his memo because his memo is something that we will dispatch in just 30 minutes because the substance of his memo has already been dealt with at the Clause-by-Clause
Consideration so that we can go to the floor. He is the Attorney General so he will be given the opportunity to come and debate on the floor.


After we finished with the work of all the 176 memos we had and the committee has done the clause-by-clause consideration, it is now the Attorney General saying he has a memo to bring. We are looking to see if Tuesday he will be available. He said

LGBTQ+ has been sternly denied by Ghanaians and rejected by many including religious groups and individuals at large.

Some Ghanaians are of the opinion that forces behind LGBTQ+ are way stronger and fighting it will not succeed as is just a matter of time to see its proliferation in Ghana.
