The Ghanaian government has provided 26,638 safe toilet facilities for households and institutions in deprived communities.
Patrick Boamah, deputy minister for sanitation and water resources, said on Tuesday the government’s quest to end the practice of open defecation and its related hazards have yielded results.
Boamah urged all citizens to live responsible lives to support the efforts of the government to make Ghana clean.
A deputy director at the Ministry of Sanitation Kweku Quansah said the government’s target was to ensure that every household and institution in the country had safe toilets by 2030.
Nii Mensah, a 24-year-old resident of La, a suburb of the capital, said that the provision of toilets had helped reduce the constant outbreak of cholera in the community.
Mensah urged the government to work hard to improve the livelihoods of the citizens. Enditem
