The Ghana Drunkards Association has expressed disappointments in the two biggest political parties in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for not consulting them before drafting their manifestos to get proposals that would address some of their needs.
Ghana Drunkards Association, which claims to have members of about 10 million people across the country is currently unhappy that their interest was not factored in the manifestos of the two major political parties contesting the 2020 general election.
President of the Association, Moses Onyah, aka Dry Bone warned
that their members should not be underestimated because they are capable of deciding who wins the forthcoming election.
Dry Bone reportedly told Angel FM that GDA members have been responsible for all election run-offs in the country, hence the need to take their interest into consideration when national issues are being decided on.
We could cause about four run-offs in this election,
“They don’t even add us to the manifesto. We are floating voters and we determine elections every year. Governments could establish an alcohol factory for us but they don’t. These are some of the things we need,” he continued.
He further stated that whichever party the Drunkards Association throws its weight behind in the upcoming elections stands the chance of winning hands down.
