Indomie and Mobile Money are the major causes of teenage pregnancy in Suhum – MCE

According to Madam Magret Darko, the municipal chief executive, teen pregnancy is on the rise in the Suhum Municipality despite several efforts by the government and NGOs to address the issue.

She stated that a recent study by the Ghana Health Service, Social Welfare, and other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) found that adolescent pregnancies are primarily brought on by young girls’ love of indomie and mobile money (MoMo).

The study also showed that a big factor in the issue was social media addiction.

According to reports, teenage girls let boys sleep with them so they could readily access their phones, snap pictures, and post them on social media. According to the Suhum MCE, this is true.

The MCE said, “The young females would easy give in sez if a guy could just buy indomie for them at night and send a token to their MoMo more frequently.”

The study’s objective was to identify COVID-19’s harmful impacts on adolescent girls and women over the preceding two years and suggest solutions.

The research findings the Mce suggested were presented at the Suhum Assembly’s third general meeting.

The MCE, Hon. Margeret Darko, stated that teenage pregnancies in Suhum Municipality have remained troubling over the years in an interview with Accra Fm news reporter Apelete Kofi-Michel.

The primary reason teenage ladies leave school is to start a family.

More than 50% of teen mothers drop out of high school, and over 25% of teen mothers, particularly in rural areas, have a second child within 24 months after the first.

In order to safeguard their children’s future wellbeing, she recommended parents to look after them and make sure they receive a solid education.
