Police officers in Ghana have been told to reduce their sexual activities ahead of the country’s general elections in December.
A top police chief for the capital city Accra, DCOP Afful Boakye-Yiadom said less sex among the police officers will save them enough energy for election security exercises.
Boakye-Yiadom told the officers after a march that “Control yourself, we all need the energy to work during the election I, therefore, advise all of you to eat well, reduce your sexual rounds for you to get the energy to work well before, during and after 2020 elections.”
Ghana will be holding presidential and parliamentary elections on December 7, 2020 to elect a new president and lawmakers.
Police officers play key roles in security activities for elections in Ghana and have already started preparations towards that.
On Monday they embarked on a march across the capital city to build public confidence in their work.
The Director-General in charge of Operations of the Ghana Police service DCOP Kwaku Boadu-Peprah also advised the officers to avoid being partisan.
He “When it is time for the election, we are just going out there to discharge our duty and at the end of it whoever comes to power it is none of our business, we support the government of the day”.
