Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, Founder and Presiding Archbishop of Action Chapel International has added his voice to the controversy over the Comprehensive Sexuality Education ( CSE), stating that sex education should be reserved for parents not teachers.
In an interview with Daniel Dadzie, host of Joy FM’s Super Morning show, the revered man of God noted that the responsibility to provide knowledge and guidance for children on sex should be left to parents.
“When it comes to the matter of sex education and the upbringing of children, like I said, we have two kingdoms here — the world and the church. And parents must take responsibility when it comes to sex education. We shouldn’t leave it to the world or schools,” he opined.
For him, anything that is not consistent with our belief system must be rejected and discarded, arguing Ghanaians to not accept anything that is not in line with their culture and tradition.
“We are not going to conform to the standards of this world and what they call sex education if it violates our belief system. We are not going to conform to that,” he urged Ghanaians.
However government has denied having any plans to implement CSE in basic schools in the country but the Minority in Parliament has insisted that the government with funding from the Swedish government are well on their way to implementing it in Ghana.
Many Ghanaians across the political divide have rejected the CSE with the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council leading the charge on the Christian front. The Chief Imam has also vehemently opposed the CSE.
The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to address the nation on the controversy as announced by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
