The controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) policy for primary schoolchildren will empower teachers to molest their pupils, former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs has said.
According to him, the contents of the documents require practical examples and the teachers will use the young girls as prey.
Mr Jacobs has joined the many who are kicking against the sexuality education which will empower children with information on their sexuality and reproductive health issues.
Though Ghana is yet to introduce CSE in schools, critics claim the programme is a guise to introduce children to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender activism.
In support, Mr Jacobs on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem programme, Tuesday questioned why young children have to be introduced to sex education before they are sexually active.
He wondered whether the so-called experts took into consideration the Ghanaian culture before approval such a “promiscuous” document.
CSE, Mr Jacobs noted, is a recipe for disaster if parents don’t assume the responsibility of teaching their wards about sex education.
“Sex education should not be part of our curriculum; it should be the job of parents not teachers,” he opined.
The former NDC chairman blamed the ‘ugly noises’ on the government’s inaction when the fake documents were being circulated on social media.
“What happened is communication failure and the political parties will take advantage of it,” Mr Jacobs added.
