11th June declared National Drinking Day – Ghana Drunkards Association
The Ghana Drunkards Association has announced Friday,
June 11 as a National Drinking Day.
According to the Association, the celebration is to control
the high number of mental cases in the country.
This was announced in a statement signed by the President,
Moses Onyah, widely known as Dry Bone.
According to him, observing National Drinking Day will also
help relieve its members and non-members of life’s complexities
in order to release our members from hardship, frustration
and depression. We believe that measures taken by the
- Three children battling for lives with parents dead in fire outbreak
- Pregnant women are made to pay big monies before delivery
- Two Chinese and a Ghanaian arrested with 21 gold bars
association to ignite members to drink responsibly in order
to release all the stress and hardships in the system, will also help
reduce mental problems in the country,” part of the statement read.
It added: “It will also help reduce depression, frustration, anger,
and create a new environment for members to reunite
with their work duties and family.”
However, Dry Bone has cautioned both local and international members
to drink responsibility as “we recognize this faithful day.”
