The Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has asked Foreign Affairs Minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey to serve notice to the diplomatic community to stop using visa denials to threaten them for supporting anti-gay bill.
He said if they use visa considerations to influence the decisions of lawmakers in Ghana, that same principle will also be applied to them.
Mr Ablakwa described the plan to use visa considerations as weapon as reckless and provocative path.
“It is primitive, an unmitigated affront and grave assault on our sovereignty for any country to use visa considerations as a weapon to influence the decision of duly elected lawmakers.
“Our foreign ministry must promptly serve notice that the principle of reciprocity will apply to any nation that embarks on this reckless and provocative path,” he said in a tweet on Friday October 14.
