Ghana’s Minister for Sanitation, Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has said the nation’s capital, Accra, is no more as filthy as it used to be before the NPP assumed office.
According to her, her ministry has pursued the President’s agenda of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa by cleaning all the filth that has engulfed the city.
In an interview with Asempa FM, an Accra-based radio station, Madam Cecilia Dappah said the work done on cleaning the city is short of 15 per cent.
“Accra is 85% clean; now you don’t see heaps of refuse on the street because we have provided bins across the capital, the promise to make Accra the cleanest city is doable.”
She cited the way Accra became very clean during the Coronavirus-induced lockdown which points to the fact that should Ghanaians accept to have a behavioural shift, Accra will definitely become the cleanest city on the continent.
She also urged Ghanaians to refrain from the practice of littering gutters, warning that the full rigours of the law will be hard on offenders.
