Forget BBC’s Sex for Grade, lets fight the CSE. This may be a destruction from the comprehensive Sexuality Education.
While the BBC’s sex for grade is revealing to some extent, many are disappointed in Ghana because, the videos were only suggestive to some extent. The title of the content as far as the Ghana version is concerned does not portray any of the acts.
In Ghana, fighting against the teaching and education of children aged five and above about comprehensive sexuality should engage our attention as a nation. The BBC can go ahead with its intentions. Let us a nation focus on the much talked about CSE and its dangers. Let us stay focus as Kevin Ekow Taylor will say it. Ghana, Be focused.
According to Ghanaweb publication, the chairperson of the anti-sexual harassment committee of the University of Ghana (UG), Dr. Margaret Amoakohene has refuted allegations made against some lecturers of the institution cited in the BBC Africa Eye documentary, saying that there is no evidence that shows that they slept with the students to give them better grades.
It News Portal also revealed in another publication that “Staunch and relentless critic of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ) community and their agenda, Lawyer Moses Foh-Amoaning has revealed that former Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei was sacked from the United Nations (UN) because he was questioning activities of the UN that had to do with LGBTQ rights and lifestyles”.
This write up is not to suggest that, it is okey for persons in authority at any level and in any institution should attempt to abuse those they come into contact with in the line of duty sexually. The publication it self is also flawed because, the BBC lied about the age of the “student” who was not actually a student. If she was, she was not a student of the Univerisity of Ghana. There is so much that is not clear.
The big question is what was the motive behind this and if the BBC did a one year video, and all they could get was conversations between UG lecturers and their 17 year old bait, then they have to come again.
Ghana let us focus on fighting the CSE, winning that battle is more important to us than the so called “sex for grade”.
