Mrs. Dappah said this when she appeared before Parliament’s Appointments Committee on Tuesday for vetting.
She noted that a lot of work has been done by her predecessors and herself to ensure that Accra becomes the cleanest city on the continent.
“Accra is on course to become the cleanest city that the President said in absolute terms. I think we are on course looking at what we started doing and what I continued from my colleague,” she said, as quoted by Citinewsroom.
It will be recalled that, in 2017, President Akufo-Addo revealed plans to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa before the end of his first term.
However, the four-year deadline has now been missed, with parts of the capital still filled with filth as the President enters his second term in office.
The Sanitation Minister-designate, however, believes “when you start a process, it takes time to yield results.”
In November, Mrs. Dapaah stated that government was 80% through with making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.
According to her, 100% of the cleaning of the city was done during the Coronavirus lockdown period.
She, however, noted that some people had once again started littering the city following the easing of restrictions.
