In what has been described as a humorous plea, the Greater Accra Regional Commander of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Afful Boakye-Yiadom, has urged police personnel across the country to reduce their sex drive and sexual rounds ahead of this year’s general election in December.
He explained that this will give officers the needed energy to undertake their policing activities in the electioneering period.
Addressing a group of police officers after a route march organised by the police service on Monday, DCOP Boakye-Yiadom said, “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.”
The route march was aimed at assuring the public of the police’s readiness ahead of the elections.
The police marched through some principal streets of Accra.
The Director-General in charge of Operations of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Kwaku Boadu-Peprah, also warned police personnel against engaging in partisan political activities ahead of the elections.
“As a policeman, you are not supposed to involve yourself in any political activity.
“You can only do that when you enter the polling booth, there you can exercise your power.
“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”, he reiterated.
