The President of the Republic of Ghana- Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo declared his intention to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa under his tenure. All citizens, local government authorities, civil society groups and corporate bodies have therefore been tasked to contribute their quota to make this dream come through.
One of the problems of sanitation that Accra is confronted with has to do with open defaecation which is very rampant in most areas. In his recent State of the Nation Address presented in Parliament, His Excellency the President did not mince words with the fact that open defecation was a shameful practice that must be stopped immediately. He lauded the idea of household toilets that were being constructed across the country.
Consequently, the CEO of FinGha 360, Mr. Ahmed Meyaki thought it appropriate to donate one unit of Happy-Loo toilet facility to the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly. According to him the gesture was also to allow patrons to have a feel of this new prototype which is very hygienic, environmentally friendly, easy to install and use. According to him, another advantage of the Happy –Loo toilet is the fact that it does not require water and sewerage networks.
Mr. Meyaki hopes that every household could have at least one Happy-Loo toilet at home since it is very affordable when compared to the rest. This he says will promote sanitation and eradicate diseases associated with open defecation and improper disposal of faecal waste.
The Municipal Chief Executive of LeKMA-Hon. Mrs. Evelyn N.A. Twum-Gyamrah who received the toilet facility in the company of the Municipal Coordinating Director, Municipal Environmental Health Officer, Head of the Cleansing Unit and the Hon. Presiding Member was very impressed about the technology used. She expressed her appreciation to FinGha 360 for choosing LeKMA out of all other Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies in the region for the donation. She promised to be the first client of the Happy Loo toilet in the Municipality.
