Ghana is Not The 51st State of the United States, You Either Do Business With Us or You Can Walk – Sam George to America

Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram constituency, Sam George, has issued a strong statement defending Ghana’s passage of the Human Sexual Rights and Family Values Bill, commonly known as the anti-LGBTQ+ bill. In a bold declaration, he asserted Ghana’s sovereignty and right to protect its cultural values, challenging American businesses to respect Ghana’s stance or leave.

“GHANA IS NOT THE 51ST STATE OF THE US, YOU EITHER DO BUSINESS WITH US OR YOU CAN WALK,” he stated. He emphasized that Ghana’s decision to uphold traditional values should be respected, asserting that American businesses are in Ghana primarily for profit, not to dictate social policies.

In his remarks, Sam George highlighted the perceived hypocrisy of Western nations, citing Qatar’s ban on same-sex marriage which attracts a death penalty, while still engaging in military hardware transactions with the United States. He called out what he sees as a double standard in international relations, questioning why similar objections are not raised against countries like Qatar.

“American businesses in Ghana are not here because of LGBTQ, they are here to make profits,” Sam George emphasized, underscoring the economic motivations of foreign entities operating in Ghana.

The MP’s comments come amid heightened debate and controversy surrounding Ghana’s anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, which has drawn criticism from human rights advocates and Western governments. However, Sam George’s firm stance reflects a broader sentiment within Ghanaian society, where cultural and religious values often inform public policy decisions.
