The MP for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George has revealed that the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, commonly referred to as the anti-gay bill, is on track to be passed by March 2024.
In an exclusive interview on Eyewitness News, the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram provided an update on the bill’s current status, disclosing that it is currently undergoing amendments with input from various stakeholders.
According to him, approximately 60% of the consideration process has been completed. Speaking to the show’s host, Umaru Sanda Amadu, he expressed optimism about the bill’s progression through the parliamentary stages.
“They are almost 60% done with consideration. Hopefully, there will be another two weeks of parliamentary work when we resume, and they should be done with consideration. The third stage of reading is just a procedural thing. It is read, and then the bill is passed.”
“In fact, during the first session of the meeting, we are about to start, we believe that in the first session which is going to run from the 6th of February to the end of March or early April, I believe that we should pass the bill before Easter. I think it is something we should give as an Easter gift from Parliament to the nation. So we would strive to work with the speaker and the committee chair,” he said.
