The Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programme being introduced to public schools by the Ministry of Education has been described as criminally dangerous.
Subtle attempts have been made to introduce the programme to schoolchildren with the explanation it will enable pupils to acquire accurate and reliable information on sexual reproductive health.
The Ministry has also indicated the CSE will develop skills of children for self-development and decision-making, give them a sense of confidence, assertiveness ad ability to take responsibility and ask questions.
The programme has come under intense criticism, receiving bashing from a section of the public including church leaders with many describing it as a deliberate attempt to introduce homosexuality to Ghana.
Kofi Bentil of Imani Ghana took to Facebook wall to express disgust at the programme and described it as criminally dangerous and demonic.
He wrote, “Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh, Minister for Education, You launched this quietly. We’ve found out. WITHDRAW CSE NOW!!! IT IS THE MOST DAMAGING THING YOU CAN DO TO OUR KIDS! CSE Comprehensive Sexuality Education is not only criminally dangerous and demonic, it has been refused everywhere people realize what it is!! #sayNoToCSE.”
Mr. Bentils condemnation of the CSE is echoed by MP for South Dayi, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor who demanded fierce resistance to what he said is satanic education being labeled euphemistically as health education.
A statement he issued on the matter indicated that a sinister monster is on the prowl in the country called the NPP government.
“This Gov’t has approved through the PPAG and the Ghana Education Service, what it calls “comprehensive” sexual education manual to be introduced in our schools in a couple of days.”
“The long and short is that my 7yr old daughter is to be taught by her teachers how to have sex and derive pleasures from it because it is her human rights including anal sex,” he said in disgust.
According to the MP, he finds this culturally offensive, grossly unchristian and inappropriate.
“Above all, it’s a 1st degree felony to engage in a sexual act with a child below the age of 16 years with or without her consent. It’s called defilement pursuant to the Criminal and other Offences Act, 1960, Act 29.”
President Akufo-Addo, he said, should be reminded of the law if he has forgotten and urged the PPAG that it would be in their interest to return all monies they have collected from whichever organization to desist from this campaign.
