Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has expressed disappointment in a section of journalists in Ghana’s Parliament, trying to equalize adolescence reproductive health programme of the previous administration, with introduction of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).

At a press conference addressed by the Minority Leader to kick against the introduction of CSE at the basic level of the Ghanaian educational curricular, some journalists sought to find out if the previous government did not seek to introduce same programme they are kicking against.

“I am disappointed some journalists are laboring to equalize and  justify CSE, we get disappointed in you sometimes that on a matter of national concern you are interested in confusing it with adolescent reproductive health, a trained journalist in Ghana why?”, he lamented.

When, Ghanamps.com sought to know if the Minority would take along some colleagues of theirs in the Majority who openly are against the introduction of CSE, at the basic level, he said, “We are encouraged because the righteous among the Majority side would join us”.

“We urge you to go and tell Ghanaians as we have said it here in our press conference, don’t go and confuse or add to our message, and again confuse adolescent reproductive health issue of age ten with Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) at the basic level”.

Mr. Iddrisu further pointed out that the Minority cannot be blame because they saw to the approval of the 2019 budget where the CSE was clearly in, and challenged journalists in Ghana’s Parliament to go and check the Minority’s position during the budget approval debate.
