The Ghana Drunkards Association is calling on the Ghanaian government lead by President Nana Akufo-Addo to introduce a double-track system at open-air pubs and drinking spots across the country.
This, according to the group, is to assist in the adherence to social distancing protocols as the country gradually opens up the economy amid the fight against the novel coronavirus.
National president of the group who spoke to JoyNews also requested for Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for his members at the various drinking spots nationwide.
He suggested a shift system to guide the reopening of other types of bars along with the open-air facilities.
“Some people will have to come and drink in the morning from six depending on your working hours. They will be given tags. Then when you drink to a certain level you will go home and allow others to also come,”
“We will give out tags. If you are on the gold batch you will come in the evening but if you’re on the green batch, you’ll come in the morning.”
Ghana Drunkards Association has a message for the president of Ghana 🤣😂
He further explained that each bar would be required to install Veronica buckets at vantage points in line with the safety protocols by the government.
President Akufo-Addo in his 14th COVID-19 update announced the lifting of some restrictions in the tourism sector.
In addition to the reopening of tourist sites and attractions, he further stated, open-air drinking spots can now function fully but in adherence to social distancing protocols.
Ghanaian government’s latest lifting of restrictions comes approximately four months after they were ordered to close down as part of measures to control the spread of the virus.
