Former President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has call on government to discard the intention of introducing Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in basic schools in Ghana.
He stated on facebook that,”he fully understand the outrage of the moral society and a large majority of parents, opposing the planned introduction of what government and its partners call Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).
As noted by the Presbyterian church of Ghana, most Rev. Philip Naameh of the catholic bishops conference, Rev.Dr. Paul Frimpong-Manso and National Chief Imam Sheik Nuhu Sharubutu, this addition to the national curriculum can not be acceptable in any form.
Government must immediately withdraw its policy to promote sexuality,sexuality types and practice among young children as the CSE guidelines implicity advocates
We reject it and note that it is important for government and all Ghanaians to respect and uphold the enduring values ,norms and the rich culture of Ghana.
What Ghana urgently need is substantial improvement in quality education, which is accessible to all.”
