Drop ‘Satanic’ Sex Education Programme : Chief Imam

Published

Chief Imam

The National Chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has described the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education curriculum as satanic.

According to him, Islamic teachings do not tolerate the exposure of children below age 10 to sex education.

“We would like to state unequivocally that the Islamic Community does not accept any form of educating minors and pupils on sexuality. In our estimation, such a move is an attempt to hide behind educational reforms to brainwash the pupils with LGBT agenda.

Ideally, Islamic jurisprudence recommends that sexual education be introduced to children above the age of 10. This is the time the children are expected to begin to understand the socio-moral consequences of the choice of sex orientation.

“We, therefore, urge the sector Ministry and GES to consider a broad consultation with relevant stakeholders on the implementation of the controversial policy.

“We appeal to the Ministry and GES to drop that satanic agenda in the interest of national cohesion and moral promotion,” the Chief Imam said in a statement.

The statement also urged the Ghana Education Service to embark on broad consultation on the matter before any attempt at implementation.

It comes after the massive public uproar against the sex education initiation with some Ghanaians calling on the education ministry to withdraw it.

For instance, the Concerned Teachers Association of Ghana says teachers in the country are not aware of the controversial curriculum which is starting next academic year.

According to them, claims by the Ghana Education Service that teachers have been briefed about the curriculum are untrue.

Below are details of the statement

THE CSE AT PRE-SCHOOL LEVEL

The Office of the National Chief Imam (ONCI) wishes to add its voice to the ongoing debate on the agenda of Ghana Education Service (GES) to introduce what it calls Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) at the KG, targeting 5-year old pupils.

The ONCI is joined in this endeavor by the Tijjaniya Muslims of Ghana, the Islamic Peace and Security Council of Ghana (IPASEC), the Islamic Council for Development and Humanitarian Services (ICODEHS), the Islamic Research Association of Ghana and the Association of the 16 Regional Chiefs Imams.

We would like to state unequivocally that the Islamic Community does not accept any form of educating minors and pupils on sexuality. In our estimation, such a move is an attempt to hide behind educational reforms to brainwash the pupils with LGBT agenda.
Ideally, Islamic jurisprudence recommends that sexual education be introduced to children above the age of 10. This is the time the children are expected to begin to understand the socio-moral consequences of the choice of sex orientation.

We appeal to the Ministry and GES to drop that satanic agenda in the interest of national cohesion and moral promotion.

The ONCI and its partners mentioned above take this opportunity to reiterate their commitment to discipline and morality among the youth and in the learning industry.

We thank the media for helping us carry this and other messages across.

Sincerely yours,

Alhaji Khuzaima Osman
Personal Assistant to the National Chief Imam.

Manchester United have officially confirmed that Odion Ighalo’s loan deal has been extended until January 31, 2021 after they reached an agreement with his parent club, Shanghai Shenhua.

In a statement, the club said: ‘Manchester United have reached agreement with Shanghai Greenland Shenhua to extend the loan deal for Odion Ighalo.

The Nigerian striker’s stay was initially due to end on 31 May but he will now remain with the Reds until 31 January 2021, enabling him to build on an impressive start to life with the club he supported as a boy.

Ighalo’s tally of four goals in eight appearances so far includes at least one strike in each of his three starts – against Club Brugge, Derby County (2) and LASK.

Today’s confirmation is a timely boost for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as he continues to prepare his squad for this month’s resumption of competitive football.’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also thanked Shanghai Shenhua for allowing the 30-year-old to remain in Manchester longer than previously agreed.

“They [Shanghai Greenland Shenhua] have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club,” Solskjaer said.

“It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish what he started and win a trophy with us.”

Odion Ighalo, who signed for Manchester United on a short-term loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua back in January transfer window, has scored four times in eight appearances in all competitions before the suspension of the Premier League.

Congrats Ighalo…
