Mrs Akufo-Addo said this when Miss Earth 2016, Deborah Eyram Dodor, and other beauty queens from various countries across the globe paid a courtesy call on her.

Mrs Akufo-Addo commended Ms Dodor for spearheading a clean Ghana campaign dubbed: "Trash in Bin", which is intended at encouraging the use of trash bins across Ghana.

She also assured Ms Dodor and her colleague Miss Earth queens of her absolute support for their initiative which she noted would help beautify the environment and make a meaningful contribution to sanitation in Ghana.
