Controversial politician and businessman, Kennedy Agyapong says Kindergarten (KG) kids are innocent and should not be thought the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).
He has no qualms in the curriculum being thought in the upper primary because he believes it is essential to model their sexual life but kicked against same in the Kindergartens.
“The problem I have is those in Kindergarten because if you teach them such things they will not understand. They are also very small to be thought such sbjects…that is where I have problem apart from that there is nothing wrong about it”, he said
He however lashed out those who are arguing in the name of religion, morality and customs indicating that they hide and do worse things than what is to be implemented.
In his view, the curriculum for CSE must not be taught in pre-schools but it is important that children in the primary schools are thought sexual education.
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.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo says he will not approve the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education Programme for schools in Ghana.
Speaking at the St Cyprians Anglican Church at Kumasi last Sunday, the President said his vision is to promote national development and not immorality.
“There have been talks in recent times about me and my government introducing some inappropriate materials into schools. I brought the Free SHS to strengthen our education and so I will not allow any immoral materials to enter our schools.
“I’m a Christian and as long as I sit as President of Ghana, I will not allow anything like that in our schools so I urge you all to be calm because I won’t let that happen,” he said.
