Akufo-Addo supervising ‘one-junction, one-bola’ sanitation problem - Vanderpuye

Member of Parliament [MP] for the Odododiodoo constituency in the Greater Accra region, Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuye says that the President’s State of Nation Address [SONA] on sanitation issues is too much of sweet words than expected action.

“I taught President Akufo-Addo will give an exact report on how his administration has handled sanitation issues since their administration in his 2019 SONA delivery, not knowing it will be his old political gimmicks of promising to enhance sanitation issues by the end of his time in office,” he said.

He said the President since the days of his campaign have promised to curb sanitation problems in his first hundred days in office when voted into power, yet he has not been able to attain any of this promises but keeps promising.

“I will urge the President to be more of deed oriented in sanitation terms as soon as possible than his long term assurances, because as an MP in the city of the nation I get embarrassed when I move around town,” he indicated.



Speaking on Adom FM’s ‘mpensenpensenmu’ newspaper discussion programme, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye described sanitation issues under President Nana Akufo-Addo in Ghana especially Greater Accra as “one-junction, one heaped refuse dump”, meaning one comes across a heap of rubbish gathered at every junction in the city.
