A former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yamin, has said that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s statement on the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) was not convincing enough.

To him, the President was deceived with regards to the CSE and upon realising it, he is now using his Authority to reject it.

“I listened to what the President said in Kumasi and it sounded more like he was addressing free senior high school and not CSE. So at the age of four, we want to teach kids about CSE and this is totally different from what was taught before.

“The President is trying hard to defend something that Ghanaians are already aware of. They should tell us that he was deceived and upon realising it, he’s now using his authority to reject it,” he said in interview on Adom TV’s Badwam morning show.
