The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council(GPCC), an umbrella organization for of over 200 church denominations and para-church organizations, has appealed to the Parliament of Ghana to “review aspects of 2019 Budget Statement that committed state resources to funding this controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) by ensuring that it is withdrawn and that no funds are expended on the policy.”
In a press statement on the controversy surrounding Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in Ghana, the body has outlined five recommendations on how to bring a permanent resolution to the much-talked-about CSE.
Among others the GPCC has recommendations, the GPCC has called on Parliament to immediately state relevant processes that will withhold any money meant for CSE.
However, Government has denied any plans or monetary commitment to the implementation of CSE in Ghana.
The Minister of Education in a recent press conference stated categorically that there were no such plans implement such a policy as being bandied around by a section of Ghanaian populace.
He said the documents making rounds which are purported to be a part of an approved manual on CSE do not emanate from the government hence must be disregarded.
“It is so unfair for people to bring a book from nowhere and start lambasting government,” he said.
He maintained that the CSE was neither on the table nor under consideration because the National Council for Curriculum Assessment is done with its work on the new curriculum.
