The Drunkards Association of Ghana wants President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to introduce a double tracks system at drinking spots all over the country.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his 14th address to the nation on measures to be taken by the government to fight the coronavirus pandemic announced the reopening of drinking spots and tourists sites in the country.
While places such as pubs and nightclubs remain closed, the president noted that open-air drinking spots can operate by observing the protocols established for coronavirus.
However, the National President of the Ghana Drunkards Association, Moses Drybon, has disclosed that the president must initiate a double tracks system at drinking spots as part of measures to avoid overcrowding.
According to him, the drinking spot double-track system – which will be in the morning and evening – will ensure that social distancing is properly observed.
“In an open place where people can hurry in to drink …… when you drink to a certain amount we’ll let you go home so we’ll let others come in as well. We will give you a card if you ‘re in the gold batch you will come in the evening, if you are in the green batch you will come in the morning so that we will be able to observe the social distancing protocols, ”Moses Drybon told JoyNews.
He also pleaded with the government to provide free Personal Protective Equipment for the drunkards.
“We need free PPEs because we’re likely to crash into people if we’re not protected.”
