- A picture of a man representing drunkards in Ghana is making some Ghanaians freak out
- The picture was captured on the news channel of Joy FM in Accra
Never would you believe that there is a special association got drunkards in Ghana, yes, drunkards!
If what we see from the screen of Joy News is anything to go by, then of course we are covered by the belief that anyone who drinks too much could be liable to joining an association of drunkards in Ghana.
In the picture, you will see a panelist by name Moses Onyaa addressed as the “president of drunkards association of Ghana”.
The revealing picture by sports journalist, Gary al-Smith comes in the wake of the food and drugs board banning alcoholic drink, Adonko bitters from the market after disturbing photos showed how consumers of the drink were left inebriated – scattered along a stadium in Kumasi.
Local alcoholic company, Adonko Bitters has been banned by the food and drugs authority after this disturbing video below showed how tens of youth got inebriated ,completely dozing off into the morning after the company's annual Adonko Aseda bash.
Alcohol abuse remains one of the leading causes of death across the world as many scientists attribute excessive intake of alcohol to chronic heart diseases and even cancer.
Some Ghanaians have shared their thoughts on the post:
Here in Ghana, a council of alcoholic companies has merged to regulate the sale and consumption of the beverage.
But despite regulatory laws on the beverage, the national media commission is still facing challenges on the indiscriminate advertisement of such beverages at odd hours of the day – a development which is suspected to increase cases of alcohol abuse in the country.
