Legal luminary and anti-gay campaigner, Moses Foh-Amoaning, has warned that any attempt by government officials to clandestinely introduce the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) as part of the curriculum would be met with fierce resistance.

He says his outfit is aware of the intense lobbying by some unscrupulous government appointees to covertly introduce the policy, despite the widespread condemnation.

Mr Foh-Amoaning, who is the spokesperson for the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values, said these when addressing the media in Accra on Wednesday.

“We are happy the president said it was not coming, but we want the Ministry of Education to understand that there are some people in there who want to go through the back door.

“We are saying Ghanaians would resist this attempt to bring it through the back door anyway and anyhow. We know it won’t happen and we believe that together we can develop an alternative curriculum from kindergarten through primary school, through JHS and Senior High that would teach our children the right things”.

The law lecturer argued that any attempt to impose the policy on Ghanaians would amount to subverting the national constitution because ‘the constitution states that sovereignty resides in the power of this country”.

He added, “We want to say particularly for this current government they have higher moral duty to ensure that on this matter they stand with the God that they spoke about because this government came to power on the wings of the battle is the Lord’s”.

Many faith-based organisations raised red flags against the Comprehensive Sexuality Education guideline developed in partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), to be integrated in the curriculum.

There are fears the course content of the CSE guidelines in the public domain resonates with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) activism.
