President Nana Akufo-Addo has said neither he nor his government has any intention of smuggling “inappropriate” things into the curricula of schools.

Making reference to the alleged introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education into the basic school curricula, which has been widely condemned by both the Christian and Muslim communities as a “satanic” means of subtly exposing pupils to the LGBTQI agenda in Ghana, President Akufo-Addo told a congregation at the St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, on Sunday, 7 October that such a thing will never happen under his watch.

“There is only one thing I want to say: I think you people have heard within the past days, some discussions have gone on that I and my government want to teach our children some things that are inappropriate. I brought the Free Senior High School [policy] to strengthen the country so that our children will all get the opportunity to learn and through the education, we will all see the progress we want for this country.

“I didn’t bring it for our children to be taught inappropriate contents. So long as I sit on this big seat as the President of this nation, and as a Christian, it will never happen that I will agree for inappropriate things to be taught in our schools. So, please keep your cool. Whatever they are saying has no truth in it”.

Last week, Education Minister Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh denied claims that CSE had been approved to be part of the curricula for basic schools.

However, civil society group OccupyGhana said there was a lot of evidence contradicting the minister’s claim and demanded clarity from the government on the matter.
