In a bid to put Ghanaians mind at ease and to somewhat bring the CSE debate to an end, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says his administration does not intend to go against the norms and values Ghanaians holds so dear.

President Akufo-Addo, in a brief address at the St. Cyprian's Anglican Cathedral at Asem in Kumasi said: "we have no plans as a government to do anything that contravened the norms and values of the society".

Ghanaians have for the past days been battling with the ruling government over reports that it intends to introduce homosexuality to children through the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculum.

Christian and Islamic clerics, as well as civil society organisations and Ghanaians on social media expressed outrage about reports that the inclusion of CSE into the curricula was to promote LGBT.

Ghana’s Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh refuted claims that CSE has been introduced into the curricula of basic schools.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, 1 October 2019 he said: “the curriculum framework (KG-P6) approved by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) for use in the development of school curriculum, which has been approved by Cabinet and published does not include CSE”.

However, this didn't cool down the fire in people's hearts.

On Sunday, 6th October, 2019 President Akufo Addo added his voice to calm nerves saying his government has no intention of introducing CSE.
