‘One of the things we had in our secondary schools (in South Africa) that I think we need to introduce in our secondary school (in Ghana) is condoms. While we were in school, we go to the bathroom and you see soap, water and condom stand. Why is it so?’ She asked.
‘Teenagers are having sex, whether we like it, admit it, close our eyes, pretend it is not happening. It is happening! And teenagers are having sex. So teach them the use of a condom’.
She further stressed; ‘A teenager cannot comfortably go to the pharmacy and say sell me a condom, but if it’s there he’ll use it, and when they use it there wouldn’t be pregnancies’.
