The leadership of the Minority at the press conference

The Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng is asking the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to render an unqualified apology for including the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (SCE) in the education curriculum.

He said the conduct of the opposition party and the Minority Members of Parliament smacks of hypocrisy and double standards.

Prof Frimpong-Manso’s comment was in response to the Minority’s call on President Nana Akufo-Addo to come clean on the introduction of CSE in schools.

At a press conference in Accra, the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, claimed that the President is the “lead anchor” after he allegedly received $22 million from the Swedish government to implement the CSE.
