Otumfuo calls for attitudinal change towards environment

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II says it is only when Ghanaians

changed their attitude towards the environment, that the country's

sanitation can improve.

According to the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, until the peoples' attitude

changes the sanitation conditions currently witnessed many parts of

the country may not improve.

The Asantehene made the call when the Minister for Local Government

and Rural Development, Julius Debrah led a high powered delegation to

present sanitation tools and equipment to him, towards the National

Sanitation Day which comes off Saturday, January 3, 2015.

It is also to honour Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for his interest and the

enthusiasm he has shown in previous National Sanitation Day exercises.

The Asantehene regretted the current level of indiscipline in the

society and called on Ghanaians to adopt positive attitudinal change

towards environmental sanitation.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony at Manhyia, Friday, January 2,

Mr. Julius Debrah commended the Asantehene for his immense

contribution and support for the National Sanitation Days.

The Ministry has so far distributed 10,000 litre bins across the

Ashanti Region where the exercise is being observed.

Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye

wants sanctions to be unleashed on citizens who deliberately abstain

from the National Sanitation exercise. The National exercise meant to

encourage voluntary cleaning of communities by the public has been

fraught with apathy.

DCOP Kofi Boakye wants the various assemblies to institute bye-laws to

punish people who stay away from the national exercise.

He told Luv News it is de-motivating to find shop owners and traders

standing and watching as cleaning goes on.

Commander One as he is affectionately called, wants the exercise

scheduled for Saturday, January 3rd, 2015 to be seen as a national

rather than a political deed.
