The National Sanitation Day instituted by government to deal with Ghana’s embarrassingly poor sanitation situation started on a promising note albeit slow.

The Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur and a host of celebrities are in the lead at the sixth National Sanitation Day hosted in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua, cleaning gutters and dirty surroundings.

The sanitation day observed once every Saturday of the month is geared towards cleaning the environment and to inculcate in citizens the need to keep their surroundings clean at all times.

Traditional rulers, security personnel, civil society groups, political parties, Members of Parliament, traders and youth groups turned out to clear the street and gutters of the Eastern Region engulfed with heaps of garbage.

While the day is observed nationwide, the government decided, as a policy to make one region the host region for a particular month and changes the host for another month.

The Vice President has however admonished Ghanaians to take the exercise very serious.

In attendance is the Deputy Local Government Minister, Emmanuel Agyekum.
