Reverend Joseph Bosomah, Acting Chairman of the Central Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has expressed concern about the excessive alcohol ads on television and radio.
He, therefore appealed to government to quickly check the act before it causes harm to the youth.
Rev. Bosomah made the appeal when he addressed the 26th Presbytery Meeting of the Central Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) in Winneba.
It was on the theme: “The Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Church today.”
Rev. Bosomah said medical research had shown that many of the premature deaths among the youth today could be attributed to the excessive drinking of alcohol.
He said those alcohol ads were doing more harm than good to the youth and the earlier it was stopped the better.
Rev. Bosomah appealed to the National Media Commission to come out with a strategic plan that could check the advertisements of alcoholic beverages to ensure the safety of the youth.
