The Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbungu Constituency in the Northern Region, Ras Mubarak has called on Religious Leaders to put pressure on the President and Education Minister to withdraw the new curriculum on the Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE).
There have been reports that the Ghana Education Service (GES) is set to introduce a new curriculum that will educate students on their sexuality right from the lower primary level.
The reports have been met with severe resistance with claims that the new curriculum will be a means of introducing the Ghanaian child to gay rights.
Commenting on this on Accra-based Okay FM as monitored by Angelfmonlinegh.com, Ras Mubarak said the introduction of the new curriculum will not ‘exalt Ghana at the global level.’
“It doesn’t exalt the country, let’s get serious as a country and focus on the things that will make our kids competitive at the global level,” he said.
Ras Mubarak further noted that per the details of documents from the Ghana Education Service (GES), the new curriculum will persuade pupils at the basic level to have the free will to be transgender.
“I appeal to the President and Education Minister to do something about this curriculum…from Parliament, we will do our best and apply the necessary pressure for this thing not to happen,” he added.
He further called on Religious Leaders in the country to demonstrate and write petitions to the President.
“I will encourage religious leaders including Imams, Pastors to write petitions to the President and demonstrate that we don’t want it in our society…all of us must rise up against it as it will not help Ghana today or tomorrow,” he charged.
The Kumbungu MP also advised parents to take keen interest in their children’s education.
“I will encourage parents to take keen interest in their children when they come back from school, they must ask them what they were taught so that if there is any indication of these things, you advise yourselves.
“It is okay for the school to teach our kids that when a teacher is harassing a student they can report, but it is not okay to hide under these things to teach our children that they have the free will to become a transgender as it is within their human rights. It is an aspect in the curriculum that must be avoided,” he charged further.
