The assurance, according to the President of GPCC, Rev Prof Paul Yaw Frimpong-Manso though belated is commendable.

President Akufo-Addo has brought closure to the raging debate on whether or not the government intends to roll out sexuality education in basic schools.

Religious bodies, civil society groups and political parties, alarmed by it, expressed fears that the introduction of the CSE will indoctrinate children to be tolerant and accept homosexuality.

But, President Akufo-Addo assured that as a Christian, his faith will not permit him to expose pupils to immoral teachings. 

This declaration from the President, Rev Prof Frimpong-Manso said, is all they were expecting from the government.

Rev Prof Frimpong-Manso added that, they are working closely with other educational and interfaith groups to build up a strong national resistance to the policy and to ensure its total withdrawal, never to be reintroduced in another form or name in the future.
