Sam George Reacts To French Ambassador's Apology To LGBTQI+ Community After Hosting Him

The French Ambassador to Ghana, Anne Sophie Ave, has rendered a public apology after hosting Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, on her ‘Touch Of France’ TV show.

The apology, according to the Ambassador, has become necessary following perceptions that she is promoting anti-homosexual agenda on the show.

Mr George, who is one of the MPs sponsoring the anti-LGBTQI+ bill, appeared as a guest on the show to discuss issues of the nation and global interest.

However, members of the LGBT community were reportedly dissatisfied with his appearance with France as a country that supports their sexual orientation.

Taking to her Twitter page, she noted the show and the Embassy promote France and its actions in Ghana.

She added their guests are people with experiences of the country and their relations with Ghana to share which was the criteria they used in selecting Mr George.

She wrote: The French Embassy in Ghana and Touchoffrance.gh promote France and the actions of France in Ghana. Our guests are ppl with an experience of France, and of FR Ghana relations, to share.

Hosting MP S George was based on these sole criteria. I understand this has created a perception that we offered a platform to anti-LGBTQIA+ ideas: this is not the case at all. However, some people have felt offended and I wish to apologise for that.

To him, the LGBTQI+ community is the most intolerant people he has met, adding they must take him on instead of looking for easy targets.

The MP has, for the past weeks, mounted strong defence on why the bill, which seeks to criminalise homosexuality, is important coupled with altercations with some people believed to be championig the LGBTQI+ agenda in Ghana.

Any Married Man Who Claims He Does Not Have Side Chick Is A Liar, I Have One And My Wife Knows It – Odike

Ghanaian businessman and politician Akwasi Addai Odike has disclosed that he proudly engages in extra-marital affairs which his wife is aware of and fine with.

According to the 57-year-old presidential aspirant, his wife knows her role and the side chick also understand her position thus they both respect each other and get along quite well.

Speaking to Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr FM, Odike said almost all married men have side chicks but they feel ashamed and guilty to reveal their identities.

He maintained that any married man who claims he does not have a side chick is a liar.

“I’m married with a girlfriend. My wife and girlfriend are both aware of this.”

“My father was polygamous, but I can’t sit here and tell Ghanaians I’m not. If any man is honest with himself and God. You do not have to swear to any woman that you are the only one. Never will I flatter anyone.”

“But if I discover that you are a suitable woman who can bring me joy, then sure. I expect my woman to understand me unconditionally and to love me unconditionally.”

Odike added that his primary source of happiness is women so he ensures that he treats women well, and have as many as he could afford to take care of.
