Mr. David Oppong, Metro Director of Education for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has stated that, inclusion of LGBTQIA+ should be the last thing to consider in our education curriculum.

His comment comes on the back of the statement by the former Director of Education in which he seems to advocate the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender/transsexual [LGBT+] activism in the country's education curriculum.

A former Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Charles Aheto-Tsegah has called for the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender/transsexual [LGBT+] activism in the education curricular.

Mr Tsegah believes that when the LGBTQ+ is introduced in Ghana's education curriculum, children will gain knowledge on the discussions and the practices of the LGBTQ+ society at an early age to make an informed decision in future.

While many have turned down the decision to allow GES to enroll the Comprehensive Sexuality Education subject into the education curricular, Mr Tsegah thinks otherwise.

According to him, children are thought about other social vices to help them desist from committing mistakes in the future and not for them to practice them.

But reacting to the issue on SilverFM's Omanbapa Show , Mr. David Oppong told Nana Ampratwum that teaching LGBT+ in our various schools will rather inculcate bad attitude into our children and not help the children in any way.
