President of the Ghana Drunkards Association (GDA), Moses Onyeh, alias Dry Bone, says the Association has suspended the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, for two weeks to rescind his decision of increasing tax on alcohol.
The suspension according to Dry Bone, was calculated to prevent the President from patronizing any alcoholic beverage during the Easter festivities.
Speaking on TV XYZ’s political programme, “the gumbe show” Dry Bone, said, the president of Ghana is their bonafide member as he himself confirmed in his inaugural speech, and to turn and impose such huge tax on their source of joy is a betrayal hence the suspension.
Not only is he suspended, but will face further sanction should he fail to do the needful after the two weeks’ ultimatum. “We suspend him for two weeks during which period we expect him to reverse the decision, failure to do so, we shall revoke his membership by withdrawing his licence” he emphasised.
According to Dry Bone, the 10.6 million members of the Association could have decided to spoil their ballots in any elections or embark on a demonstration but both ways will amount to wasting of the scarce resources of the country and undermining national security, hence the decision to suspend the proud member. “Our 10.6 membership weighs more than any political party membership in Ghana and if we decide to demonstrate or spoil ballots it will go against the nation so we suspend the President” he added.
The GDA President further stated that, in order to carry the suspension effectively, photos of the President will be pasted on blue kioks and no member shall be permitted to sale alcohol for him.
On earlier assertion by Maxwell Kofi Juma, that people who take alcohol are useless, Dry Bone, said he is the chief of uselessness.
“Maxwell Kofi Juma, was Director of GIHOC which produces alcoholic beverages so he is the director of uselessness,” he retorted.
Dry Bone, intimated that one would have thought that after inability to provide the one million jobs promised Ghanaians and job losses as a result of the collapsing of banks will end there, but a deliberate move to collapse an industry which employs thousands of people including frustrated NABCO workers who are now bar attendants, pub operators among others will not be tolerated.
Ghana, according to Dry Bone, consumes 1.5 million gallons of alcohol yearly, excluding those exported to neighbouring Nigeria, Togo etc.
Ghana’s excise tax on beer is estimated at 16percent of the average retail price, while the excise tax on spirits is estimated at 10percent of the average retail price.
