Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

President Mahama joined some residents in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region

to clean up some areas in the region last Saturday.

The clean up exercise formed part of activities to mark the 2 nd

edition of the National Sanitation Day.

The local government Ministry initiated the campaign in November 2014

to rid the country of filth after several hundreds of people died from

a cholera outbreak.

Government set up the first Saturday in each month as a national cleaning day.

Meanwhile the Accra Metropolitan Assembly has said it is satisfied

with public participation in the nationwide clean-up exercise.

Many Ghanians failed to participate in exercise but the AMA has said

it is satisfied with work done.

Speaking to Citi News,the Public Relations Officer of AMA, Numo Blafo

said "we had some successes .I will say Saturday's activities were

much better than the maiden one we had last month"
