National Sanitation Day not time wasting – DCE

Mr Samuel Emoade (third from left with hands strectched) speaking to the people before the clean-upSammy Euroade, District Chief Executive (DCE) of Ho West, has asked Ghanaians not to consider the National Sanitation Day instituted by President John Mahama to rid the country of filth, as time wasting.

Rather they should use the opportunity to keep the environment clean to prevent the outbreak of cholera and other diseases.

Mr. Euroade made the call after joining the people of Abutia Kloe, in the district to participate in a clean-up as part of activities marking the previous National Sanitation Day.

Global Peace Advocacy Associates, a non-governmental organisation collaborated with the assembly to organise the exercise.

The DCE commended the people for keeping their environment clean, and urged them to sustain their communal spirit and initiate self-help projects.

Mr. Euroade stressed that people should not to toy with issues bordering on good health because it is a foundation for national development.

He said the assembly would continue to support the people to keep their environment clean, and to observe hygienic practices.

Mr. Lambeth Donkor, Executive Secretary for the NGO, assured them that it would continue to work with the assembly to keep the environment clean, and support waste management organisations to recycle waste materials.
