President and Founder of Groupe Nduom, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has bemoaned the poor state of sanitation in the capital city of Ghana , Accra.
In a post on his Facebook wall Dr Nduom asked: “So, who should we hold responsible for the filthy and dirty City called Accra? House fronts turned stores, kiosks of all types abound. Public spaces overgrown with weeds, with garbage uncollected etc”.
He continued: “From Ridge to Ring Road on the way to Kasoa? Hmmm. I can’t close my eyes and keep quiet about filth that insult my senses. I can only imagine what goes through the minds of the tourists we are going to great lengths to convince to come to Ghana”.
According to Dr Nduom, it is for this reason that the Ghanaian voter should be allowed to vote for his or her metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) and all assembly members.
He noted that keeping the environment clean and healthy would be one key factor the people will consider in deciding to vote for a chief executive.
“Right now, those appointed to run Accra have failed. The President who appointed them must find their replacements who will clean up the city and make its environment beautiful. Otherwise, the problem sits on his shoulders”, said.
