Prof. Opoku Amankwah – Director General Of GES
THE GHANA Muslim Mission has called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to take further steps at ensuring that all teaching and learning materials related to the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) are completely wiped out from the country’s educational system.
This, according to the organisation was necessary to prevent the festering of elements in the educational system that would affect the Islamic principle on morality and the general cultural norms of the country in totality.
Chairman of the organisation, Dr Amin Bonsu, has in a signed statement, dated October 7, 2019, expressed appreciation to President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Minister of Education, Mathew Opoku Prempeh for their response in allaying the fears of Ghanaians.
“It is gratifying to hear that his Excellency, the president of the Republic of Ghana has made a definite statement that he will not allow anything such as the CSE that will destroy the moral values of our society.
“This comes in addition to the statement from the Minister of Education and the GES which said that there was nothing like CSE in the curriculum” he said.
It has therefore requested GES to deepen its engagement with all stakeholders to discuss sensitive issues of the concerned education.
“As stakeholders in Islamic education, in the country, we would not agree to any changes that will affect our Islamic principles on morality as well as the general cultural norms that frown on certain sexually inappropriate behaviours and immorality” Dr Bonsu added.
