Former President, John Dramani Mahama has asked the government of Nana Akufo-Addo to provide the country with quality education and not Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).

The flagbearer of the main opposition party said this while reacting to the public outrage on the proposed CSE in the new curriculum.

Religious Groups and other imminent personalities in the country have kicked against the supposed introduction of CSE into the country’s education.

But the Education Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has disagreed insisting that the government has no plans to implement such a policy.

Commenting on this on his Facebook wall, the former President said the outrage shows clearly that the country is not ready for any such education and therefore, added his voice to calls for its withdrawal.

“I fully understand the outrage of the moral society and a large majority of parents, opposing the planned introduction of what government and its partners are calling Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE)…,” he said.

He further called on the government to always ensure that it upholds the moral values of this country.

“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…,” he added.

To him, what the country needs is not CSE but quality education that will help develop the country.

Below is his full post:

“I fully understand the outrage of the moral society and a large majority of parents, opposing the planned introduction of what government and its partners are calling 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 Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, this addition to the national curriculum cannot 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 implicitly 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 needs is a substantial improvement in quality education, which is accessible and affordable to all.”
