Sanitation Minister Cecilia Abena Dapaah has stated that the Nana Addo led administration’s promise to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa by 2020 is 85% complete.
She said this to media after a cleanup exercise in parts of Nima on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
According to her, despite the effort government is putting in place, it is sad that some citizens are bent on derailing government’s efforts.
“When we don’t do these things of throwing rubbish into the drains, the drains will be clearer and neater and our homes will also be clean because the Assembly has been tasked to send round the tricycles to pick up our waste.
“So I am telling you and I know you will quote it that, we are 85% through [with making Accra the cleanest city]. You all saw the 100% we achieved during the lockdown. So the question is, who makes Accra dirty?”
President Nana Akufo-Addo on April 24, 2017, declared his intention to make Accra the cleanest city on the continent, by the end of his first term in office.
