Ghana’s National Chocolate Day which was introduced to replace the traditional Valentine’s Day under the erstwhile John Agyekum Kufuor administration was for a health purpose though unknown to many Ghanaians.
Most Ghanaians embraced the day thinking it has come to promote locally produced chocolate which hitherto was not being patronized by Ghanaians as expected.
Years after the introduction of this year, its real motive has now been unveiled as not meant just to promote the local product but also to boost sperm count among Ghanaian men according to an expert.
This appears to show the former president was smart enough to have introduced but the main reasons for its introduction kept under wraps.
An expert in nutrition has revealed the Former President John Agyekum Kufuor introduced the day to encourage men to consume chocolate and also boost their sperm count as the former statesman knew the future was dangerous for men in Ghana.
Speaking on Kumasi based Oyerepa Fm, Dr. Sammy Joshua a Nutritionist noted, “Former resident Kufuor introduced the National Chocolate day with the intention for boosting sperm count but he could not make it plain to Ghanaians”.
If you could be recalled some years back Ex-President Kufuor initiated that we replace Valentine’s Day with National Chocolate day. The essence is that Chocolate boosts libido and sperm production because of the cocoa used in the preparation of chocolate. But he did not add that statement”. He said.
Dr. Joshua also noted, “when people consume foods like garlic, raw cocoa powder, date, vegetables and less alcohol, low sperm count will be out of their way”. He told Nana Jantuah on Oyerepa Breakfast Show.
