President of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has supported calls for the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) by the Ghana Education Service.

Despite the fact the subject at hand has received a lot of backlash from Ghanaians, Cudjoe thinks that is the right approach for kids to know more about their sexuality.

In a twitter post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Franklin Cudjoe stated that he sees no wrong with the introduction of CSE in the new curricula, because kids of this generation are exposed to a lot of things and are abreast with a lot of information, so would be appropriate if they are taught what they already know.
