Celebration of a KVIP - NPP MP puts up signboard marking fulfillment of promise

Celebration of a KVIP - NPP MP puts up signboard marking fulfillment of promise

YEN.com.gh has sighted a Facebook post from a user who reports of an upcoming commission of a community toilet facility in the Atwima-Nwabiagya Constituency in the Ashanti Region.

The post from Odeneho Stevenson alleges that the Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency, Benito Owusu-Bio, views the toilet facility as part of an agenda of "Fulfilling Our Promise".

Neither the MP nor the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have commented on the post which went up on Wednesday afternoon.

This was the caption on the photo: "This is absolutely trash, stupidity and cheap popularity, commissioning of toilet facility by a Member of Parliament?

Mr. MP, this should never be regarded as an achievement so wake up and stop taking the very people who voted for you for granted."

Public toilet facilities are usually referred to as the Kumasi Ventilated Improved Pit (KVIP) although a KVIP is technically different from the water-closets that are put up these days.

Historically, Ghanaian politicians and indeed politicians everywhere, have forced to take the credit for successes they deem necessary to their legacy.

The process of announcing their success includes putting up signboards, running TV, radio, internet and print advertisements.
