Atta Kojo Appiah Korang, the founder of the nonprofit organization Save the Nation for the Future Generations, has requested that the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] refrain from reversing its decision to forbid celebrities from supporting alcoholic products.
He claimed that the FDA’s one-of-a-kind measure is crucial to cleaning up our social environment.
The FDA prohibited Ghanaian celebrities from endorsing alcoholic products, citing the action as a component of the government’s endeavor to safeguard minors from being drawn into alcohol addiction.
Even though the FDA made this decision with good intentions, a number of celebrities are not happy with it and have chosen to take the agency to court, claiming that the decision violates their fundamental human rights.
“The FDA deserves praise for making such a bold decision. I’m prepared to speak for them. I’m willing to provide them with free legal representation if they don’t already have one. It is not possible for us to be all-powerful celebrities to influence our children and promote alcohol products. In an interview with Rainbow FM’s Kwabena Agyapong, which 1Family radio listened to intently, he said as much.
Mr. Appiah said he would gladly support the FDA’s decision, even going so far as to provide free legal representation, because he fears what would happen if the celebrities were permitted to endorse alcohol. In his view, the celebrities have already done enough to negatively influence the youth.
He claims that the lives, fashion choices, language used, and attitudes of celebrities have had a detrimental impact on young people, encouraging undesirable alien cultures like homosexuality, which seriously compromise our cultural values, ethics, and principles.
He continued by saying that if these issues are not resolved, future generations will likely have very little regard for our cultural values and dignity.
