One of Ghana's top police officers was met with uncontrollable laughter from his subordinates after suggesting they have less sex ahead of December's general election.
The officers were advised to reduce their sexual activities in order to conserve energy for the upcoming elections.
"We all need energy to work during the elections," said Deputy Commissioner of Police Afful Boakye-Yiadom earlier this week, adding:
"I therefore advise all of you to eat well; reduce your sexual rounds."
Ghana is barely two months away from a major election with the police set to play key roles in the maintenance of law and order before, during and after the elections.
