The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ministry of Education, Vincent Ekow Assafuah has said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) began a process to introduce the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) into the curriculum of public basic schools in 2015.
There’s been a heated debate on the implementation of the CSE with some religious institutions describing it as ‘satanic’.
Others have also threatened to embark on demonstration if the Ministry of Education goes ahead and introduce CSE into schools.
Communicators of the main opposition political party, the NDC, have accused the government of deliberately trying to introduce CSE to corrupt the country’s morals.
NDC MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa claimed in his Facebook wall that the government has been bribed to implement 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.
Another MP, Peter Kwakye-Ackah said the President, Nana Akufo-Addo knows and approved the implementation of CSE.
“If the President does not know anything about this, it wouldn’t have been implemented, he knows about it that is why the Ministry is deciding to implement it…,” he said.
Commenting on this on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen as monitored by Angelfmonlinegh.com, Vincent Assafuah said he is shocked some leading members of the opposition party will accuse the government of trying to implement CSE.
He described as ‘hypocrites’ NDC MPs condemning the government as according to him, the NDC government under former President, John Mahama tried to implement CSE IN 2015.
He further claimed that Ghanaians have a problem with the real definition of CSE and what it entails. He however assured that the CSE policy does not include Lesbianism, Gaysm, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT).
