The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection is demanding for National Media Commission (NMC) to immediately ban Counselor George Lutterodt from National Television and Radio stations in Ghana.
This comes after the self-styled Counsellor intimated on Accra-based Adom TV that rape victims do not experience pain through the process of being raped.
According to him, rape victims also enjoy the act of being raped by the perpetrators.
A statement signed by the Gender Minister, Cynthia Mamle Morrison said “There is no justification what so ever for him to make such a malignant statement on Television or in private. We call on the Ghana Media Commssion to ban im from appearing on their shows.”
“We also call on the Ghana Psychology Council to take the appropriate action against him His beliefs on rape is disgusting and he is a threat and danger to the general public,” the Minister added.
However his comments did not go down well with a section of the Ghanaian public as some individuals including actress Ama K. Abebrese have also initiated social media campaigns to get rid of Mr Lutterodt from the media space.
Madam Cynthia Morrison, urged the NMC to as a matter of urgency stop the controversial Counselor from appearung in the media.
She further called on him to render an apology for the unfortunate comments made on Adom TV, an affiliate of the Multimedia Group.
“We therefore call on all wel-meaning Ghanaians to join hands and condemn the act. We also call on him to unreservedly retract his unsubstantiated and nsensitrve statement and apologise to the general public,” She concluded.
