It is undeniable fact that Ghana is a developing country, and for a country to progress it must have a healthy and skilled Human Resources. However, Ghana is likely to lack healthy, labor force in the nearest future. This may be due to excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Most Ghanaians use alcohol for almost all kinds of ceremonies. Parties, funerals, outdooring  to mention but just a few. Others particularly the youth drink alcohol for fashion and peer influence, forgetting and ignoring the fact that it is hazardous to their health. What are we doing about this?

Our religions have commanded us to a lot of things, but no religion to my knowledge preached the goodness of alcohol. Yet a lot of people are in to it. It is pathetic to state that alcoholic advertisements have dominated our electronic media, all aimed at inducing Ghanaians to drink – with a minor caution that not to be sold to children below 18 years. Who actually checks that?
Lastly, it’s again worrying that majority of the advertisements of these alcohol beverages seem to suggest that they give sexual stamina. Even  if that’s true , which I doubt , compare that to the diseases like heart failure, kidney disease and paralysis etc which caused mainly by excessive consumption of alcohol.

One can read further on legalities and illegalities of alcohol from liquor licensing act 1970 (act 331).  It will surprise you to realize how the authorities ignored the laws for mother Ghana 🇬🇭 to suffer the resulting consequences of alcoholism.


I therefore would like to draw the attention of Ghanaians to look at the side effects of alcoholism. Also, the authorities should make sure that the laws governing alcoholic beverages are adhered to. The government can increase tax levies on alcoholic products to make it difficult, if not impossible, for alcohol producers to operate in Ghana .

 Thank you very much.
