Mr Julius Debrah, the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development who received the items, commemded SSNIT for the gesture.

He noted that the exercise was gaining momentum, judging by the experience of the Kumasi exercise on the first Saturday of this month.

Mr Debrah said, the Ministry was not only enthused about sustaining the programme, but also happy that the culture of being self-dependent in cleaning exercises was gripping the society.

He asked other corporate bodies to emulate the SSNIT’s example by supporting the programme in any way they might choose.
