President Akufo-Addo has arrived in Kumasi in the Ashanti region to meet religious leaders over the controversial comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).

The unannounced meeting is being held behind closed doors, Starr News has learnt.

The President is also expected to meet traditional and other opinion leaders to allay their fears over the programme which has been overwhelmingly rejected by Ghanaians.

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has called on Ghanaians to rise up and fight against aspects of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) program which seems to promote homosexuality.

The introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) has been met with massive public uproar with some Ghanaians calling on the education ministry to withdraw it.

Majority of Ghanaians have expressed fears that the introduction of the CSE will indoctrinate children to be tolerant towards homosexuality.

Akuapim South and Nsawam branch Secretary of GNAT Daniel Agyei Nmai says though details of the CSE have not been made available to teachers as part of the Curriculum, aspects of the program emerging on social media and traditional media suggest a looming danger which must be blocked by all Ghanaians.

“It is not going to help us because we believe that if we are going to talk about gender right to the extent that a girl can decide whether she wants to be a girl or boy, is dangerous to our society so I think as a nation we should all come together to fight that particular policy but if it is just teaching about female personality ,male personality i don’t think it is a problem because it has always been part of our curriculum ”.
