The Minority has called on the president to render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians for approving the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) policy.

According to the Minority, the president presided over the cabinet meeting where the CSE policy was approved.

The Minority is also calling for an immediate withdrawal of the CSE policy from the education curriculum.

This comes on the back of Ghanaians' reactions to the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) by the Ghana Education Service.

Majority of the population including religious leaders have expressed fears about a subtle agenda through the syllabus to promote Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) plan.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Education has refuted such claims stating that the curricula approved by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) for KG to primary 6 do not include CSE.

“The curriculum framework (KG –P6) approved by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) for use in the development of school curriculum, which has been approved by Cabinet and published (www.nacca.gov.gh), DOES NOT include CSE,” he said

He cautioned faith-based organizations to fact check their information from official government sources before making utterances on matters arising.

However, at a press conference, the minority in parliament called on Ghanaians to resist "satanic and destructive CSE policy" as they demand an immediate withdrawal of the policy.

"The president Nana Akufo-Addo who presided over cabinet where this satanic CSE policy was approved owes Ghanaians an explanation and an unqualified apology at the very least."

"The Minority in line with the thinking of John Mahama, leaders of a moral society, parents and most importantly for the sake of our children demand an immediate withdrawal of CSE from education curriculum and from our communities," Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu stated.

The Minority revealed that the Akufo-Addo government has signed Ghana up to the Program Acceleration Countries (PAC) initiative involving six African countries for the implementation of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education.

The initiative is being funded by the Swedish government which has so far committed $22 million for the initiative.
