COUNSELOR and elder of the Church of Pentecost, New Achimota District, Mr. (Nii) Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who cannot control their libido to be allowed to have safe sex.
In the opinion of the respectable grandfather and church leader, safe sex is the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications and other ramification including bringing otherwise bright future of the victims to ruins.
Elder Nii Armah Hammond opined that too much was at stake when young teenagers get pregnant.
In his view not only does the individual suffer but the collateral damage to the family and the country were equally damming.
As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affects the family concerned long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.
Mr. Hammond made this remarks at the maiden edition of Mmabunu Mmre (Time with the Youth), a youth content programme, anchored by Mr. Akyena Brantuo on Ahotor 92.3 every Saturday afternoon from 12:00 pm -1:30 pm.
