founder and General Overseer of the Christian Action Faith
Ministries, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has said
Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) for children should be
handled by parents and families.
it comes to sex education, let families, parents determine how that
should be handled and it should be in the hands of the parent, and
the Church also must take a stand when it comes to sex education of
what we believe.
belief is based on scripture, my belief has nothing to do with what
anybody intends to do or what anybody is saying, my belief is simply
what the Bible says,” Archbishop Duncan-Williams said in an
interview on Accra-based Joy FM on Friday, 4 October 2019.
comments come on the back of the ongoing debate about the
introduction of CSE into the curricula of basic schools.
and Islamic clerics, as well as civil society organisations and
Ghanaians on social media expressed outrage about initial reports of
the inclusion of CSE into the curricula describing it as “satanic”
and a pro-LGBT agenda.
Ghana’s Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh (Napo) has
refuted claims that CSE has been introduced into the curricula of
Prempeh said at a press conference on Tuesday, 1 October 2019 that:
“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
does not include CSE”.
the denials, pressure group OccupyGhana said it has sighted several
documents that contradict the position of the Education Minister and,
therefore, wants the government to state its position on the CSE.
Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) at a press
conference also said the mere suspension of CSE is not enough and is
demanding a total withdrawal.
