       It is aimed at making senior high schools bedbug-free by the year 2030.
        The onetime dribbling magician said Ghana could stay healthy and even raise a formidable team for the 2022 World Cup scheduled for Qatar if “we take environmental hygiene seriously”.
        Mr Ahmed commended the NGO for its initiative and called on other non-governmental organisations, corporate bodies and individuals to support such a laudable initiative.
            Mr Kwabena Osei Bonsu, Chief Executive Officer of the NGO said the issue of bedbugs had been a national concern over the years.
         He appealed to Ghanaians to support the campaign to enable the NGO to realise its dream.GNA
