GOMOA CHIEFS PLACED CURFEW TO PREVENT TEENAGE PREGNANCY

As part of moves to curb the high rate of teenage pregnancy, chiefs and elders in the Gomoa traditional area in the Central Region have placed a curfew on children below eighteen (18) years. The move, according to Nana Edu Effrim X, the Odikoro of the Gomoa traditional area, will help salvage the situation where children between the ages of ten (10) and seventeen (17) engage in early unprotected and unwanted sexual activity as a result of inadequate parental supervision, particularly at nights. Speaking at a youth forum organized by Health Keepers Network, Nana said, the pride of the Central Region which used to be education had now been overtaken by the rise of pregnancy; a shameful situation which is of great concern to the chiefs and elders in the area.
