Residents of Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) District of the Central Region have been advised to ensure that good sanitary practices are followed to enable the Assembly concentrate on its development programmes.

Mr Isaac Sam, the Municipal Chief Executive, said good sanitation must be a concern for all and that conscious efforts must be made to ensure a clean environment for a healthy living.

He made the call when he joined residents of Eguafo and the staff of the sanitation unit of the Assembly to undertake a four-hour clean-up exercise to rid the town of filth on Wednesday.

He said resources channeled into waste management could have been used on other projects to accelerate the socio-economic development of the area.

Even though it was a working day for the predominantly farming community, the exercise saw a huge participation as the women swept the streets and collected refuse whilst men helped in de-silting choked gutters and drains.

Mr Sam commended the people for their participation and appealed to them to stop the indiscriminate dumping of refuse.

Earlier this month, the KEEA Municipal Assembly distributed about 157 liter bins to some key public institutions in the Municipality, of which majority were schools.

Ebusuapanyin Kwamina Nketia, who spoke on behalf of the people, appealed to the Assembly to engage the services of the unemployed youth in the community to keep the gutters clean and help in checking residents from dumping refuse indiscriminately.
