Religious leaders have called for calm and a halt to the slanging match over the much-talked-about comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) after a meeting with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in Kumasi.


Since last week, CSE has triggered huge debate, often laced with propaganda and political undertones, compelling heads of faith groups to wade into the controversy.

However, in separate meetings with Muslim and Christian leaders in Kumasi, the President assured Ghanaians that his government will not introduce any policy that is alien to Ghanaian culture.

Discussions of the policy have dominated the media space as critics of CSE fear that school curriculum guidelines on sex education will introduce children to homosexuality, particularly worryingly at a very young age.

Won’t happen

Addressing journalists after a meeting with the President, the leader of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Reverend Professor Paul Yaw Frimpong-Manso, said: “What is known is that now there is no more CSE. The President has spoken and we trust him.”

He therefore called on all to cease fire, because CSE will not take place following the assurance given by the President.

Professor Frimpong-Manso said he will tell his congregation that there is “no CSE [since] CSE is gone”.

Reverend Alfred Appiah of the Baptist Church of Ghana said he was convinced, after listening to the President during the meeting, that the controversy should be laid to rest.

“The President assured us that this thing is not going to happen and we are taking him by his word and we believe that it will not happen,” he said.


He stressed that Ghanaian youth must be educated, but the education should not run counter to the culture of the land.

Most Reverend Peter Kwasi Sarpong, Archbishop Emeritus of the Kumasi Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, also said he had been deeply worried by the discussions about CSE flooding both social and conventional media.

“I will tell Ghanaians not to worry at all, because the President is a trustworthy person. He is a great Christian. So Ghanaians should not worry, but they should rely on God and so on,” His Grace Sarpong urged.

After a meeting with Muslim leaders at a separate venue, the Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheik Abdul-Mummin Haroun, said Muslims in Ghana are convinced there is no threat of CSE, following assurances from the President on the matter.

Ministry clarifies

In a related development, the Ministry of Education (MoE) said the government has not approved any guidelines for comprehensive sexuality education at the basic level.

“It is true that there are documents, functions and tapes to show that CSE was made part of a revised curriculum that was started in 2015.
“It is a fact that there are manuals for teaching CSE which began in the said year before the Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration came to office,” explained Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Education, as he addressed guests at the 2019 Ghana Teacher Prize event at the Paa Joe Stadium in Kumasi on Saturday.

Dr Opoku Prempeh said the government will always pursue the interest of citizens in all decisions it takes, especially regarding educational development at all levels.
