Rex Asanga, the MCE for Bolgatanga is courting the media’s support in his attempt the better the sanitation situation in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East, the MCE, Mr Asanga urged the media to ‘name and shame’ businesses that operate in filthy conditions.

Mr. Asanga opined that this could lead to businesses taking up the responsibility of cleaning their own spaces and ensuring that they operate in a clean and healthy environment.

The MCE, who is waging a war against filth in the municipality called for maximum support to ensure that the campaign succeeds.

“I will urge you the media to name and shame those businesses who operate in unclean environments. When they are named and shamed, they will sit up.”

“When there is an outbreak of sanitation-related diseases, it is not only those who are littering or causing the problems that are going to suffer. When the gutters are choked and flooding is occurring, it is the innocent people who will suffer. Some of the people who have not caused that flooding.”

“We are asking the media to really help us in this direction. The rains would really expose the kind of people that we are,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly, in their attempt to deal with the filth within the central business district of the Municipality, is expected to, in the coming days, launch the ‘Bolgatanga Sanitation Day’.

The day would be used to further the education about maintaining a properly sanitised environment. It would also be an opportunity for residents to come together and clean public spaces.

It forms part of the MCE’s campaign to make the regional capital, Bolgatanga the cleanest city in the region.
