“THE FREE SHS WAS ROLLED OUT TO EMPOWER THE CITIZENS BUT, WAS NOT TO TEACH UNNECESSARY THINGS,”
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has emphatically stated that his government will not approve the teaching of homosexuality in schools.
HE HAS THEREFORE CALLED ON ALL TO REJECT CLAIMS THAT HIS GOVERNMENT WILL INTRODUCE COMPREHENSIVE SEXUALITY EDUCATION.
There have been concerns that the new curriculum for basic schools has one of its topics Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). Many have explained the CSE to be the teaching of lesbianism, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender (LGBT).
But speaking at the St Cyprians Anglican Church in Kumasi on the controversial CSE on Sunday, October 6, the President says his vision is to have an educated country for national development not to promote immorality, that the Ghanaian culture frowns on.
He has therefore called on all to reject claims that his government will introduce comprehensive sexuality education.
“The Free SHS was rolled out to empower the citizens but, was not to teach unnecessary things,” President Akufo-Addo said in Twi.
