However, he has resolved to solve it. He said, “The spate of sanitation in the country is unacceptable. Government is working with various private sector authorities to introduce policies to affect our attitudes.”

“Sanitation rules and regulations will apply, urgent attention will be given to clearing of rubbish across the country “

Sanitation has become an issue recently as a lot of well-meaning Ghanaians have bemoaned the state of our cities in regards to filth.

President Akufo Addo said he has decided to end this menace and beautify Accra. “I'm confident that by next year, an appreciable improvement will be noted in the sanitation sector”

“I will make Accra the cleanest city in Africa before my tenure ends”, he proclaimed.
