The ultramodern toilet facility that residents of Jamasi in the Ejisu Municipal of the Ashanti region have long been waiting for has officially been opened.
The first ever lavatory has been built for Jamasi residents by Mr. Samuel Danquah known popularly as Hon SS, former Assembly Member of the electoral area.
The facility is a 20 seat capacity for both males and females, with 4 bathrooms, 2 storerooms in front and a waste site.
Hon. SS told TnT newspaper in an interview that Ejisu Jamasi has been challenged with issues of sanitation due to the lack of a toilet facility.
Some residents resort to open defecation and that has erupted diseases in the community. For this reason he saw it necessary to raise a toilet facility for the people.
“Ever since I entered this community, my dream was to build a toilet facility for the people. I have lived in this community for 8 years now but the community does not have a single public toilet. so I believe this one will help both the locals and visitors w”, Hon SS stated.
Hon SS has pledged to put up a Police station for the community in the years ahead.
However, some residents who were at the opening ceremony told this paper that, ‘at long last we can also boast of a toilet facility. We can bring our visitors here”.
They said issues regarding sanitation have been a major challenge in the community. They believe the presence of the facility will reduce numerous diseases they have suffered for some time now.
They commended the Ex Assembly member for the wonderful project he has built for them.
