The Head of Human Security at the National Security Secretariat, Brigadier General (rtd) Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has described the National Sanitation Day (NSD) as a waste of ?valuable time.?

For him nothing has changed since the inception of the nationwide clean-up exercise held on the first Saturday of every month.

The Local Government Ministry has been at the forefront of the programme which has attracted high profile personalities such as President John Mahama, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Accra Mayor Alfred Oko Vanderpuije and his peers across the country and the security agencies.

Ghanaians have been apathetic towards the exercise which kicked off September last year and the entire programme has received a lot of public backlash.

The former National Security Coordinator said the nation could save a lot if everyone makes it a habit to keep their surroundings clean instead of investing heavily in the NSD.

?Why don?t we provide dustbins and advice people to drop their litter and then we go and clean up wasting valuable time to do that, it doesn?t make sense?? Nunoo Mensah opined at the 70th Anniversary of the St. Paul’s Catholic Church over the weekend.
