Sam Nartey George also known as Sam Gyata Goerge is a Ghanaian politician from Ningo. He is a member of the National Democratic Congress.
He is currently a member of the Seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic of Ghana representing the Ningo-Prampram constituency.
Speaking at the public hearing of the LGBTQI+ Bill, he stated emphatically that Ghana is not and secular state.
“We are very confident that Ghana, and let me say this, Ghana is not a secular state. People have made the statement that Ghana is a secular state and that we must allow it. Ghana is a pluralistic religious state.
Mr Chairman, before we started this meeting you asked for prayer.
A secular state is a complete dissolution between the state and religion. You either ask for Christian prayer, you ask for a Muslim prayer or you ask for traditional prayer.
Our National Anthem is a prayer that starts with a prayer to God; “God bless our homeland Ghana”
We are not a secular state, we are religiously pluralistic.
We accept different religions but we are a nation of God. A nation that respects God and has this place in our national hood, so no one should call us a secular state.”
