Back then, ‘tankas’ (Sanitary inspectors with the Town Council) enforced discipline, making the citizenry love cleanliness.
‘Tankas’ made it a habit to inspect gutters and bathrooms in every household, strictness happened in every city and village back in the day.
You and I have a lot of work to do in redeeming Ghana’s sanitation image. Sanitation is a shared responsibility, needing action from both government and citizens.
It’s embarrassing how certain areas in Ghana get flooded whenever it rains.
Cholera outbreak, malaria, typhoid, fever, and other communicable diseases are still plaguing us in the 21st century. Communal labour has been relegated to the background.
According to Mr Emmanuel Adjei, the Founder and leader of Positive Youth Coalition Ghana ( PYC) , It’s heart-breaking Garbage is left on the ground, and in gutters everywhere.
Neighbourhoods are littered with plastic bags and no one seems to care.
Mr, Emmanuel Adjei revealed that, Both men and women can comfortably urinate by the street, on walls, in gutters and openly. Stench from refuse and other sources has taken over our surroundings, at every turn and tourism has been taken over by filth.
‘We as a nation create waste 30 days in a month and using only one day to clear the waste. Very funny.
He indicated that preparedness of Positive Youth Coalition Ghana ( PYC) to help fight the filth that has engulfed the country with the technical and logistical expertise available to them.
“We can only work effectively to improve the sanitation problems within the country where there are logistics.
He called on government, Sanitation Ministry, individuals and sundry to come onboard and support the center in kind and cash for them to increase their capacity.
It’s about time our Mother Ghana became a clean and healthy nation. Join us in this fight. Sesa Wo Suban (change your bad habit).
Call for more on.
Founder and leader ( PYC)
