The President assured the people of Ghana that his Sanitation Agenda will not be a “nine day wonder” but he and his government have developed a comprehensive programme to arrest the Sanitation predicament of the Republic.Speaking at a ceremony to officially launch the National Sanitation Campaign at the Banquet Hall of the State House, President Akufo-Addo said successive government have tried several Sanitation models that has hitherto not worked.
His initiative is thus a fresh start that will make everyday a Sanitation day in the country.
As part of efforts to lead by example, the President has directed that Sanitation Marshal and a Deputy Marshal be appointed by every government regency and department including the seat of government to oversee compliance of the laws regarding Sanitation in their respective offices.
Three Thematic Areas for the Campaign
The newly launched National Sanitation Campaign will focus on three thematic areas that will seek to change the attitudes of Ghanaians.
