“Why is Bawumia silent on Comprehensive Sexuality Education” – Otukonor
Peter Boamah Otukonor, a Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is wondering why the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is quiet in the midst of the ongoing debate about the introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in basic schools.
According to him, the Vice President’s demeanor sends mixed signals and therefore urged him to state his stance on the matter.
“The Vice President is a staunch Muslim and I know Islam is against same sex marriages, they call it haram, so he should come and tell us what he thinks about the introduction of CSE in our basic schools,” he stated.
In an interview monitored by The Ghana Report, Otukonor charged the government to issue a statement withdrawing the documents from basic school curriculum.
“Have we finished teaching the children about patriotism and how to be good citizens? but here we are,the government is willing to teach our children how to be tolerant of gays,” he added.
The introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) into the curriculum of basic schools, has been met with massive public uproar with some Ghanaians calling on the education ministry to withdraw it.
Majority of Ghanaians have expressed fear that the introduction of the CSE will brainwash the children about homosexuality.
