“I went to do a program in LSE for example, I needed a student account, the university gave me a letter, the bank refused to open an account for me. As we speak now, I can’t change $1 anywhere in the world. They’ve put me on a money laundering list. They claim I’m laundering money for evangelical conservatives in the US. So, I can’t change money,” he lamented.

“I have done some travels in the UK and Dubai. You know over there, when you want to exchange the money they’ll swipe your passport, so once they do that the countenance of the cashier changes when my name appears, then they hand the passport back to you and say we can’t change the money for you, sorry,” he added.

Sam added that he’s not the only one going through these challenges for championing the anti-gay bill.

According to him, some of his seven other colleagues sponsoring the bill have equally being blacklisted.

“It’s not just me, my colleagues too. Suhuyini was rejected a visa to Holland and the reason for rejection was that he lacked social ties to Ghana, a member of parliament, sitting member of parliament lacks social ties? On that particular matter I had to tweet at the Dutch ambassador and tell him that i was also going to make a list of all Dutch businesses in Ghana and call for a boycott in f all Dutch businesses. Then he came back And gave me the most silly excuses ever, that it Was an administrative error. Then I sent back a tweet and said that even shows how poor he is at being an ambassador.

“If an application of a diplomatic passport holder coming from the office of the speaker of parliament for an official trip can be subject to an administrative error, what is happening to several other Ghanaians who are paying so much and you are rejecting them visas are we to assume that there’s so much administrative errors there? The next day they granted him the visa,” he stated.
