Municipal Chief Executive Clean Wa

THE MUNICIPAL Chief Executive of Wa, Hon. Issahaku Nuhu Putiaha has intensified its clean-up exercise in the Municipality as part of preparations making it a model in the country.

According to him, every last Saturday of every month would be set aside for general cleaning of surrounding households in the municipality to keep it clean.

The Municipal Assembly and Zoom lion, last Saturday mobilized some residents, staff of Zoom Lion, Security personnel from the Ghana Police Service, Arm forces and some officers of the Ghana Nation Fire Service to clear the drains at the Wa Market and other parts of the Municipality.

He appealed to residents in the Municipality to help clean the town and that Zoom lion alone can’t clean the Municipality.

Going round the principle streets of Wa, some shops were fined GH¢10 for not closing their shops to join in the clean-up exercise.

Speaking to The Chronicle during the exercise, Hon. Putiaha said the monthly exercise would help clear the gutters to facilitate the free flow of water and also prepare for the takeoff of a major project.

‘We are undertaking this exercise consistently every week, to prepare the grounds for the takeoff of the major county project. Our goal is that we will continue this exercise and we are going to dredge all materials,’ Hon. Putiaha said.

Hon. Putiaha added that in line with the assembly’s environmental sanitation control programme, environmental health officers would soon embark on a house-to-house exercise to ensure that residents kept the environs clean.

The MCE further thanked Zoom Loin for its support and urged waste collectors to also intensify the collection of refuse from homes and shops.

He said environmental cleanliness was a shared responsibility, adding that ‘everybody’s participation is what will help us really clear the filth that we find ourselves in’.

He reiterated his outfit’s readiness to continuously support any organisation that was ready to help clean the town with both human and technical resources.

‘We have the human capacity and the technical logistics and we will do what we ought to do to ensure that our environment is kept clean,’ Hon. Putiaha added.

He said the assembly would continue to lead the campaign of cleaning the environment but urged community members to get involved, since that was one of the ways of sustaining the exercise.
