The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) Pastor Mensa Otabil has said that Accra is engulfed in filth because of the poor sanitation habits of its inhabitants.

Pastor Mensa Otabil said this during a sermon.

He argued that the ground does not generate any waste but rather the people who live on them.

"The ground never produces rubbish or bottles ... Accra is not dirty, it's the persons living in it that are dirty, Accra can't be dirty on its own" he argued.

The pastor’s assertion follows a recent report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which shows that Ghana's capital city of Accra ranks as the most polluted city in the world with the measure of "very high" air pollution totalling 86.11 percent.

After this report, most citizens criticised the Sanitation minister, Joseph Kofi Adda, for what they say is a poor job.

However, he argues that "the overnight solution people are expecting to get from the Sanitation Ministry will not happen just like that. It will take some time."

The minister explained that his ministry inherited a country full of rubbish across towns and cities and it was going to take some time to clean every corner of the nation.

“I can assure you by the end of the year you will see Accra very clean,” the minister assured Ghanaian during an interview with Starr FM.
