Abdul-Hamid inspects Accra inner-city lavatories project

The Minister for Inner-City and Zongo Development, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, together with the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, on Monday inspected a number of completed household bio-digester toilet facilities.

The new lavatories are being built by the ministry in collaboration with the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) Sanitation and Water project in Chorkor, Lamptey Maami, Amamomo, Chemunaa, Adabraka, Osu Alata, Osu Ashante, James Town and its environs.

Make Accra clean

Dubbed the Inner-City Household Toilet Project, the plan is just one of the Ministry of Inner-City and Zongo Development’s efforts to end open defecation in Accra and pursue President Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

The ministry has so far provided 252 toilets for free, which will serve over 6,000 inhabitants.

The Minister urged landlords and residents in zongos and inner-city areas to provide space in their houses and compounds for construction of toilet facilities.

Launch

At a ceremony last year to launch the first phase of construction in the Greater Accra Region, in James Town, Dr Abdul-Hamid said the initial works would provide 52 households with toilets.

“... this project is going to bring relief to households in our inner city and even if we were to say that every household has just 20 people, 20 times 252 is a lot of numbers.

“It gives expression to President Akufo-Addo’s vision that we need to create a society of opportunity for everybody, irrespective of where they live,” the Minister said.

He added that he was optimistic that after phases two to four, every single household in all inner-city areas of Greater Accra would have a lavatory.
