The Nigerian Citizens are now on the streets protesting against activities of the SARS. They are fighting for the termination of the SARS unit, since they have suffered all kinds of injustice from them for a long time.

Poor sanitation which leads to a subsequent contaminated drinking water imposes many health hazards on persons which include; Cholera, dysentery, hepatitis A, and typhoid.

Solid waste management remains a challenge in residents living with high density and low income.

However, another challenging issue of poor sanitation is the activities of the “Borla taxi drivers”. They will collect refuse from homes and dump them on motorways and within the community when no one is watching them. This destruct all efforts being put in place to keep the city clean.

Thereby, the assembly must register and monitor the activities of the “Borla taxis” to put an end to all these negative acts.

This is to improve on water-related sanitation and hygiene.

Let us intensify our efforts in dealing with unsanitary conditions to improve upon the health conditions of our people. Mr. Ashitey said all these while delivering a speech on the current state of Greater Accra Region at the first Regional Co-ordinating Council meeting.
