Avoid alcohol – Hohoe NADMO boss cautions Easter revellers

The Hohoe Municipal Director of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Constance Tumawu, has cautioned the public to stay away from alcohol as they visit various tourist sites in the municipality during the Easter festive season.

With Easter Monday fast approaching, a lot of holiday makers will be trooping into the various tourist sites in the municipality; notable among them are the Wli waterfall, the ancestral caves and the paragliding hills at Likpe.

The municipal NADMO boss in an interview with Lorlornyo News said overdose of alcohol slows reaction time and impairs memory, a condition he said can result in drowning and other forms of accidents.

“The main cause of accidents at tourist sites in the municipality is alcohol abuse. You can’t reason well when you are drunk. Alcohol slows your reaction time and causes accidents,” he said in the Ewe language.

He cautioned revellers who are not good swimmers to stay away from the waters to avoid drowning.

Mr Tumawu also advised against merry making at night at tourist centres which are deep into bushes with a call on members of the public to evacuate sites when night draws closer.

“I also want to advise people who will be visiting tourist sites to leave when night is approaching. You don’t have to stay in the bush celebrating at night. It is dangerous.”
