‘NAPO’ & GES DECEPTION ON GAY SEX CURRICULUM EXPOSED -Sexually Explicit PPAG manual already in use since 2018 -NAPO suggested it printed in booklets for students

Youth Harvest Foundation (YHF), a major stakeholder in the formulation of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) manual has, in a June 2018 leaflet exposed the Ghana Education Service (GES) for attempting to dismiss as fake the sexually explicit “Know it, Own it, Live it” manual circulating on social media.

Whatsup News is in possession of the YHF leaflet that stated conclusively that the GES’ School Health Education Programme (SHEP) had given PPAG the greenlight as far back as 2018 to start using the sexually explicit manual to train teachers and to teach some selected “Pilot” schools.  “PPAG on the other hand, has already taken a step forward to implement the national guidelines in schools, using their evidence-informed programme titled “Know it, Own it, Live it,” stated the leaflet.

Apparently, the SHEP National Coordinator, Mrs Esi Nkoom gave them her blessings.

The information pack from YHF went ahead to state that the Minister of Education Mathew Opoku Prempeh had assured them that the CSE recommendations would be considered as part of the curriculum review process for Ghanaian basic schools and asked for it to be printed in portable booklet forms as far back as 2018.

“The Minister of Education has also directed the harmonisation of the two CSE manuals, the Know it, Own it, Live it and the ARH sourcebook into smaller Teaching and Learning Materials and Readers to aid their easy use by both facilitators and students,” the YHF said in a revealing submission.

Whatsup News can report that the CSE was launched by the Ministry of Education in May 2017 amidst pomp and pageantry. The scandalous Know it, Own it, Live it manual was gleefully put on display by the Deputy Education Minister Barbara Asher Ayisi and PPAG representatives in a June 02, 2017 report carried on the online portal of the State newspaper, Daily Graphic.

Meanwhile, the GES and the Minister of Education amidst heated public anger at the reported subtle attempt to push a Lesbian, Gay, Homosexual and Transgender (LGBT) agenda, have issued hasty press statements and press conferences to try distancing themselves from the damning PPAG manual.

Today, Tuesday, October 1, 2019, a desperate Education Minister, Dr. Opoku Prempeh issued a statement stating that sought to focus only on 5-year-olds and 6-year-olds mentioned in the CSE guidelines. He said, no curriculum for those age groups have any CSE components in it.

“We appeal to the general public and all faith-based organisations to exercise restraint and verify the facts of official government policy before making public pronouncements,” Dr. Opoku Prempeh appealed.

However, his statement failed to answer why the official CSE guidelines signed by the Director-General of the GES, Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa clearly states that the CSE encompasses pre-school pupils of four to five years old.

For instance, Module 1, Session 1 of the CSE for 4-5-year olds will teach them personal hygiene and “What we believe in; How we interact.”

Earlier, the GES had issued a discrepant statement that focused on the allegations of LGBT lobbying, but did not deny that the CSE was part of the curriculum for Kindergarten pupils as the Minister just explained in his statement.

Even though the CSE has been launched since 2017, the GES claims there was a need to insert a phrase: “within the acceptable cultural values and norms of the Ghanaian society,” but two years down the line, this insert has not been made.

Interestingly, the GES went ahead in its September 30, 2019 statement went on to shower glowing praises on the CSE. “The goal of CSE is to equip school children with age and cultural appropriate information to explore and nurture positive and altitudes towards their sexual and reproductive health…,” state the GES.

However, Kofi Asare Executive Director of Africa Education Watch has warned of a hidden agenda “I reviewed the draft document and It indicates clearly that the guideline is an offshoot of Ghana’s bid to operationalise the Bogota Convention of 2010 which among others, seeks to ensure that [signatories] more or less appreciate alternative sexual preferences as a right,” he said on a CITI TV this morning. The executive director of policy think-tank Imani calls the CSE a Trojan Horse waiting to unleash its LGBT agenda.
