President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has debunked submissions by a section of the public that his government is clandestinely introducing foreign practices into the Ghanaian society through the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education.

The President reacting to those suggestions said, under his watch as the Head of State, no Ghanaian student will be taught contents that are inappropriate in the Ghanaian values, beliefs and systems.

Addressing the congregates of St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, President Akufo-Addo clarified the government’s position insisting that his aim for introducing Free Senior High School is to widen access to
and provide quality education but not to teach Ghanaian children concepts that are unacceptable in the country.

“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 somethings that are inappropriate. I brought the Free Senior High School 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” he said.

Many faith-based organizations raised red flags over the decision to develop a Comprehensive Sexuality Education, in partnership with UNFPA, to be integrated in the curriculum.

They feared, it could be a means of teaching Ghanaian students to embrace LGBTQ orientations.

The GES and Ministry of Education has insisted that the policy is not approved and will not be approved until it meets the standards acceptable to stakeholders and the Ghanaian context.

The President’s comments, reaffirming the position of the government that he will not permit inappropriate contents to be taught in Ghanaian schools, has buttressed and clarified the government’s position.
