Drunkards in Ghana are lacing their boots to hit the streets to protest the increasing cost of alcoholic drinks in the country.
President of the Beverage Consumers and Bar Owners Association also known as the Ghana Drunkards Association, Moses Dry Bone, said the high cost of alcoholic products is leading to a collapse of drinking bars in the country as most alcoholics cannot afford to purchase the product.
“As I speak, about 232 drinking spots have been shut down because they cannot no longer afford buying the products from sellers…,” he said on Joy News as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
Moses Dry Bone warned the Association and its members are hitting the streets on Friday, 2nd November, 2018 to register their displeasure with the increase in the commodity prices.
“Every year, 2.6 million gallons of alcohol is consumed in Ghana, so as you can see, alcohol contributes a lot to the country’s economy…,” he said.
To him, the increase in the price of alcohol in the country is leading to loss of several jobs.
“As I speak, waitresses and bar attendants are all losing their jobs and the quality of alcohol being served on the market is even falling…,” he said.
