According to him the general sanitation situation has improved tremendously and is a result of residents of Ashaiman accepting education on the need to have good sanitation that has been role out.
In an interview as to what the Assembly has been doing to maintain good sanitation conditions in the Municipality, he pointed out that, there has been a constant appeal to the residents to ensure that there is no information gap between the Assembly and the people.
“We again, appeal to them to use the various facilities that have been provided to stop defecating around, what we call free-range, but the only challenge is we have when it comes to sanitation is littering around”.
Mr. Okyere was thankful to the Sanitation and Water Resources Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah when she paid a working visit to the Municipality to inspect the progress of work on a sewage system being built.
He added that with the nature of the settlement of the people of Ashaiman, there are lots of people staying within a small kilometer square and if they flash their toilets it would come to sewage system being built when completed.
“It’s a big relief because in the past we had people queuing in other to access public toilet, but with the introduction of the household toilet now the challenge is how to dislodge the end product, hence building this sewage system is a big relief to the people of Ashaiman”.
