Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has claimed that the government of five African countries including Ghana was bribed to implement Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) into the country’s curriculum.

According to the North Tongu Member of Parliament (MP), the Swedish government committed an amount to $22 million to the successful implementation of CSE.

“On one hand they need to calm down outraged Ghanaians who are running out of patience with the many official contradictions and untruths; on the other hand they need to convince the Swedish Government which has already committed $22million to Ghana and the other 5 CSE Program Acceleration Countries that Ghana will justify the use of their taxpayer dollars especially when one of the key deliverables upon which our Government received the first tranche of money is a promise to “overcome social resistance and operational constraints,” he posted on his Facebook wall.

Ablakwa in the post explained that the desire to work to please the Swedish government is the reason why the Government of Ghana through the Education Ministry has been fighting tooth and nail to denial the reports that they want to introduce CSE.

He further alleged that the government has assured a special officer from the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) that it will offer the necessary technical support to GES to implement CSE in Ghana.

“Also, what will our Government be telling UNFPA in the face of current denials after agreeing with them to provide CSE technical support to the GES?

“Then, what happens to the contract signed with the special CSE Project Implementation Officer operating from the UNESCO Ghana office?

“Already, Ghanaian teachers have exposed the Minister of Education with page 11 of the Teacher Resource Pack for Primary 1 – 6 which shamefully contradicts the Minister’s assertions in his signed statement that there is no inclusion of CSE.

Below is the full post:

This is going to be a tough manoeuvre for the Education Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh and more generally the Akufo-Addo government as long as they refuse to be candid and transparent over the CSE saga.

On one hand they need to calm down outraged Ghanaians who are running out of patience with the many official contradictions and untruths; on the other hand they need to convince the Swedish Government which has already committed $22million to Ghana and the other 5 CSE Program Acceleration Countries that Ghana will justify the use of their taxpayer dollars especially when one of the key deliverables upon which our Government received the first tranche of money is a promise to “overcome social resistance and operational constraints.”

Also, what will our Government be telling UNFPA in the face of current denials after agreeing with them to provide CSE technical support to the GES?

Then, what happens to the contract signed with the special CSE Project Implementation Officer operating from the UNESCO Ghana office?

Already, Ghanaian teachers have exposed the Minister of Education with page 11 of the Teacher Resource Pack for Primary 1 – 6 which shamefully contradicts the Minister’s assertions in his signed statement that there is no inclusion of CSE. The Ghanaian people are certainly more informed about this issue than Government assumes. Only sincere backtracking and a total full disclosure shall set Government free.
