He said children with “childhood behaviour and childhood thinking” could not handle some subjects adding, “even adults including; church leaders sometimes have problems handling sexual feelings and we’re talking about six-year olds, seven-year olds” who would be eager to practise anything they learntf.
Rt. Rev. Dr. Ofori underscored the need for every Christian to remain committed in everything they did especially in their service to God, family and work saying that was the only way they could experience breakthroughs in their lives.
Dr Archibald Letsa, Volta Regional Minister said Ghana “is a sovereign state” and would take “sovereign decisions” without bowing to external pressures.
He however called on parents to educate their children on sexuality at home or risked their peers, internet and television educating them.
