Following a claim made by the Minister for Sanitation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, that Accra is 85% clean, Ghanaians resident in Accra have been reacting, with many disagreeing with her.
The President, Nana Akufo-Addo, had pledged to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa, but many have asserted that the sanitation situation in Accra has not improved.
But speaking today at Mamobi after leading a cleanup campaign, Ms Dapaah revealed that Accra was 100% clean during the lockdown and has only decreased to 85% following the lifting of the lockdown.
“…I will give it 85% because at the end of the day, you saw the 100% we did during the lockdown…,” she said charging all to embrace practices that promote sanitation.
But leading member of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Paa Kow Ackon, described her claim as a wonder.
