Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has suggested for government to introduce sex tourism in order to reduce the high rate of prostitution in the country.

Speaking to Boamah Darko, host of 'Maakye' educative morning show on Accra-based Hot 93.9FM, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw who acknowledged how prostitution is fast increasing in the country though it's illegal, accentuated that no one would be able to abolish the act but measures can be put in place to reduce it:
"We must start going after them (prostitutes) and council them. We could provide jobs for those who are fit to work and send the teenagers involved to school to keep them busy because when they get busy with other things, these things could stop but no one can abolish prostitution, the oldest profession because some may do it behind closed doors.
...What could help is to introduce sex tourism where some selected prostitutes are trained to entertain tourists but this should be something exclusive which could be introduced in the law but it should not be made attractive for others to join."
