Mr Yaw Buabeng Asamoah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Adenta, has called on Ghanaians to change their attitude towards the environment for them to stay healthy at all times.
He said Ghanaians could stay healthy only if they change their attitudes towards the environment by desisting from throwing garbage around their surroundings and in the gutters, which could lead to many diseases.
Mr Buabeng Asamoah made the call at the end of a clean-up exercise organized by the Ashiyie Mansaaloi Association, at Ashiyie near Adenta in the Greater Accra Region.
The five-hour exercise, led by the MP saw the Association cleaning choked gutters, clearing weeds and sweeping along the street.
Mr Buabeng Asamoah commended the Association for their commitment to help solve sanitation problems in the country.
He said government would soon supply them with a very large bin so that they do not litter the community.
Mr Enoch Nii Okpoti Koney Odsumanye, President of the Association said it decided to hold the exercise to bring back the identity of Ashiyie, which literally means a ‘clean community’.
He said the Association would continue to embark on the exercise very often to ensure a clean community, which he said would lead to development.
Mr Isaac Etsiakoh, the Youth President also advised the youth to go into viable ventures to make a living for themselves.
