The Volta regional capital, Ho, will host the National Sanitation Day organised by the Local Government Ministry.
Members of Parliament from the Volta Region on Tuesday visited the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and pledged their support for the National Sanitation Day Programme.
The March edition of the National Sanitation Day programme, which comes off on March 7, will focus on the Volta Region.
The Volta Region parliamentary caucus thus visited the Ministry to know the detailed programme and see how best they could support to make the programme a success.
The caucus, led by Mr Joseph Amenorwode, the Member of Parliament for Hohoe South, pledged to mobilize their people and work with them to ensure that people come out in their numbers to join in the clean-up exercise.
Mr Benjamin Komla Kpodo, the Member of Parliament for Ho Central, said they would discuss with their community members how they could work together to maintain good sanitation in the Region.
Mr Amin Abdul-Rahaman, Director of General Administration at the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, said the Ministry would distribute about 10,000 litter bins in the Volta Region as part of the National Sanitation Day programme.
He said even though the exercise was a nationwide one, the Ministry was rotating it on regional basis, “We have done Greater Accra, Ashanti and the Northern Regions, this time we will be in the Volta Region.”
Mr Abdul-Rahaman said the Ministry had engaged private service providers to help with the waste collection after the exercise.
