Mr. Nitiwul made the call at a durbar with officers and personnel of the Ghana Army at the Third Garrison in Sunyani, as part of his one-day working visit to the Garrison to know the prevailing challenges and also the security situation in the region.     

“You cannot have sexual relationship with the people who you are going to help maintain peace, neither can you have sexual relationship between opposite sex,” he stated.

In September this year, the Day Break newspaper reported of Ghanaians soldiers on peacekeeping in Lebanon sleeping with Lebanese girls thereby infuriating the Chief of Defence Staff(CDS), Lieutenant General OB Akwa.

The CDS is said to have threatened to deal ruthlessly, in the future, with soldiers involved in the practice.

"We send you out on missions to carry the flag of Ghana High," Lit. General Akwa was quoted as saying, "and not to engage in acts that lower the esprit de corps of the contingent.

"For now, we will only hope that the craze dies with the close of the durbar, because the axe will fall sooner or later, without discrimination on any one caught in the unbecoming act," he added.
