Praia, Aug 28 (Inforpress) – The coordinator of the “Less Alcohol More Life” campaign in Cabo Verde, Manuel Faustino, criticized Tuesday Finance Minister Olavo Correia for promoting a brand of alcoholic beverages in Cabo Verde in his Facebook page.
Asked by the Lusa agency about this promotion by the member of the Cabo Verdean Government, Manuel Faustino said he does not agree and this is a “paradox” as the new law is a Government’s initiative.
“Of course, we don’t agree with that. Regardless of being a campaign partner, the law, which will come into force on October 5 and will ban all advertising, is a government initiative,” said the official.
In this regard, the head of the Presidential Civil House said he will continue to draw attention to this if questioned.
