The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has warned government and its allied agencies that it will resist attempts to “smuggle” the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education(CSE) into the mainstream school curriculum.
Addressing a Press Conference in Accra on Thursday, GPCC called on the Education Ministry to completely withdraw the programme and never attempt to introduce it in the future.
The introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) has been met with massive public uproar against the sex education initiation with some Ghanaians calling on the education ministry to withdraw it.
There are fears that the introduction of the CSE will indoctrinate children to accept homosexuality and other awkward sexual behaviours.
The government has stated that the policy has been suspended but the GPCC has insisted suspending the policy alone is not enough and must be completely withdrawn.
It said Parliament as the representatives of the people should commence the relevant Parliamentary processes to review aspects of the 2019 budget statement that committed state resources to funding the controversial CSE by ensuring that it is withdrawn and that no funds are expended on this policy.
“While commending government on its latest decision to suspend the implementation of the CSE policy next academic year, we as a Council is however not persuaded by a mere suspension as evidence abound of existing government commitments to some international obligations on CSE, some of which have even been captured in the 2019 Budget Statement as presented to Parliament by the Minister of Finance.
“We reject absolutely the inclusion of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in any form and in any name in our school curriculum now and in the future as we see the policy as a long term subtle agenda to target our young population with a liberal mind set to accepting and tolerating LGBTQ as a normal societal behaviour in the very near future.”
