Former national organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kofi Adams says the controversial comprehensive sexuality education programme is dangerous and must be withdrawn.

According to him, Ghanaians must resist the attempt to politicise opinions over the matter.

“CSE is dangerous, it’s something we should not entertain,” Mr. Adams who is also the NDC’s 2020 candidate for the Buem constituency in the Volta region told Francis Abban on Morning Starr Friday.

It comes after the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) called on the Ghana Education Service to withdraw the programme entirely.

The introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) has been met with massive public uproar against the sex education initiation 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 and accept homosexuality.

The government has stated that the policy has been suspended but the GPCC says suspending the policy alone is not enough and must be completely withdrawn never to be introduced in any form.

“While commending government on its latest decision to suspend the implementation of the CSE policy next academic year, we as a Council is however not persuaded by a mere suspension as evidence abound of existing government commitments to some international obligations on CSE, some of which have even been captured in the 2019 Budget Statement as presented to Parliament by the Minister of Finance.

“We reject absolutely the inclusion of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in any form and in any name in our school curriculum now and in the future as we see the policy as a long term subtle agenda to target our young population with a liberal mind set to accepting and tolerating LGBTQ as a normal societal behaviour in the very near future.”
