Nana Awuku Denkyembour, broadcast journalist Nhyira FM, Kumasi
A renowned news anchor/ broadcast journalist, Nana Awuku Denkyembour of Nhyira FM (Multimedia) has charged on Assemblies, Security agencies to arrest and prosecute persons caught littering the streets and dumping refuse at unauthorized places.
“Ghanaians must support the various Assemblies in ensuring an attitudinal change in the quest to make Kumasi the cleanest city in Africa”, Nana Awuku demands.
Despite Ghana government’s mission to improve upon sanitation, public sensitization remains crucial to achieving the needed results.
The issue of sanitation and waste management should be the collective responsibility for all and sundry.
Nana Awuku says “there is the need for us as Ghanaians to change our attitude and mindset in order to have a clean environment ”.
The media must marry their commercial and social interests in order to act as the mouthpiece for public education, information and dissemination so as to support the initiative.
The public and private institutions must all endeavour to assist government’s quest to sanitizing the environment.
He has cautioned the public to embark on a positive change of tidying the environment.
