Free SHS: Voluntary education fund is for gay donors – Brogya Genfi
The voluntary education fund established by the government to receive contributions from individuals to support the government’s flagship Free Senior High School programme has been described as a fund for gay donors.
The Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Brogya Genfi said this on Homebase TV’s political show, ‘Your take Our take’.
During the 2018 budget presentation in Parliament, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta disclosed that with the successful launch of the Free SHS, “Government has received proposals from the public, several of which encourage the establishment of a fund to receive voluntary contributions to support education.”
“Thankfully, the GET Fund Law allows for the setting up of other education-related funds. In 2018, the Ministry will work with GET Fund to set up this education fund to enable Ghanaians make voluntary contributions to support education," he added.
However, Yaw Brogya Genfi who is also aspiring to be the National Youth Organizer of the NDC revealed that the intention of the government is to use the Voluntary Fund to receive donations from gay advocates.
“The NPP has changed its slogan from the Battle is the Lord’s to Homosexuality is bound to happen," he stated.
According to him, the President’s comments on Al Jazeera was a way of attracting the gay advocates to Ghana to push the homosexuality agenda.
“God frowns on homosexuality yet because the government desperately needs money for the implementation of the flagship programme, there was a need to make such statements to attract gay donors," he explained.
Meanwhile Information Minister, Mustapha Hamid has said the government has no 'intention' to legalize homosexuality because it is culturally unacceptable at the moment.
