Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Mr. Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, disclosed that Parliament is going to pass the National Sanitation Bill.
Everyone must obey this bill otherwise there would be punishments for lawbreaker or who declines to contribute in the National Sanitation Day (NSD) activities and abandoned garbage by chance.
Mr. Vanderpuye was speaking to leaders of government sector, agencies and associations, about the actions formed for the NSD exercise on July 4, Saturday, when there will be Upper Region’s turn.
He advised leaders of the sectors, agency, and organizations, to deal determinedly with unruly and idle staff who would like to give justifications, to save their selves from work.
The deputy minister asked for help from traditional leaders, staff, social groups, faith-based associations, organizations, political parties, public administrations and private organization, to make the successful trainings.
NSD exercise was the idea of the Local Government and Rural Development ministry, and requested people of the area to not politicize it, because an eruption of cholera would not distinguish in opposition to anyone, he stated.
As he said that so every should have believe that this exercise is very essential and necessary for us and Ghana and very important to ourselves and Ghana, and let us make it part of Ghana’s life.
Mr. Vanderpuye asked for the accurate guidance of children to be more accountable for their own personal sanitation.
It was upsetting to see learners in some of the universities toileting openly because there were no toilets facilities. It is the time to bring change in observations, behaviors, dealings and attitudes of the young generation, and reawaken in them to feel affection for sanitation in order for them by giving themn the responsibility of clan environment, he said.
