- Drunkards association of Ghana are threatening to release list of drunkards in the country
- They claim these top individuals are denying the fact that they are drunkards
Politicians and other religious leaders who are terribly addicted to alcohol should be expecting their names in public soon.
This is according to the Ghana Drunkards Association which believes such persons are always denying the truth about alcoholism.
President of the association, Moses Drybone who gave the hint in a radio interview ahead of their annual conference slated for December 23, 2017 said there is nothing shameful about quaffing.
“Even journalists in the capital drink more than some of us. Both talk show hosts and disc jockey will come top if we are to rate drinkers”, the President of the Association claimed.
A press release issued by the president of the association, Moses Drybone, indicates that the Congress will be holding its annual conference which aims to educate Ghanaians on safe drinking and also entreat local manufacturing companies to put safety first in the production and consumption of alcohol.
Alcohol abuse has been documented as the major cause of deaths in Ghana today. Medical officers in Ghana say that most cases of Hypertension, Kidney damage, Diabetes and Stroke are caused by the abuse of alcohol in Ghana.
Ghanaians are therefore being advised to consider putting their health first whenever it comes to the consumption of alcohol.
Meanwhile, Ghana has been added to a list of countries with high cases of alcohol consumption. In fact, a report conducted by the International Center for Alcohol Policies (ICAP) also indicates that most alcohol consumed in Ghana are illicit.
