The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George, has taken a swipe at the Spanish Embassy warning, it to stay away from things that undermine the Ghanaian culture.
The legislator says the embassy should not make comments that support the activities of the LGBTQI+ community.
He referenced a letter he stated the embassy sent to the Foreign Affairs Ministry asking to bless same-sex marriages in Ghana.
He said the culture of Ghana does not support such acts and the Ministry had communicated that position to the Embassy.
“Dear Spanish Embassy in Ghana, I am currently on an official assignment outside the jurisdiction. I would be addressing your letter to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Regional Integration, Ghana indicating your intent to ‘bless’ same-sex marriages in Ghana. Be minded that you are simply guests of our Country.
“I am well informed that the position of the Ministry is in line with our culture, traditions and current position of our laws. I wonder why you are not pushing your perverse agenda in Togo, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast,” the Ningo Prampram MP stated.
“Ghana would NOT succumb to this atrocious attempt to change our cultural identity. This should be a wakeup call to all who say the Bill currently before Parliament is not necessary and that the intent of our antagonists are harmless.”
“I want to personally urge the Chairman of the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs to rise up to the task before his committee and allow the process to proceed with any further hindrance. It is the least service he can render to his Constituents and Nation,” Sam George added.
