“We are proposing that there should be a Sanitation Fund, either supplied by the government of Ghana or through a Sanitation Levy so that we will be well-equipped financially to take care of the gap in the financing of sanitation in this country.”
After failing to meet President-Akufo-Addo’s vow to seeing Accra become the cleanest city in Africa in his first term, Minster-designate for Sanitation, Madam Cecilia Dappah remains optimistic.
Providing answers to the Parliament’s Appointment Committee on why Accra never realized this feat of becoming the cleanest city in Africa, Madam Cecilia Dapaah said she remains poised to see it come through.
“Accra is on course to become the cleanest city that the President said in absolute terms. I think we are on the course looking at what we started doing and what I continued from my colleague,” the nominee said during her vetting on Tuesday.
“Most important of all we have also through the GAMA [Greater Accra Metropolitan Area] project provided 33,00 household toilets. That is also part of the cleanliness projects we have undertaken,” Mrs. Dapaah added.
