Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa, has proposed that the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) should appoint dancehall artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy as sanitation ambassadors for Ghana.
A Ghanaian Pathologist, Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa, has suggested to the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) to appoint dancehall artistes Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale as sanitation ambassadors.
The former Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) says the dancehall artistes can use their influence to educate the youth on the importance of good sanitation.
He asserted that, the massive followership of both artistes can be leveraged by the NCCE to fight filth.
Prof Akosa, who was speaking to pupils of the Nima Cluster of Schools, as part of the citizenship week celebration of the NCCE, urged the outfit to consider making Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy sanitation ambassadors.
''Imagine Shatta, Stonebwoy...telling children of this country that ...if we can begin to package all the litter that we all produce, then this country will have a very clean environment.''
He added that: ''There’ll be no flies, there’ll be no germs, there’ll be no disease, the air will be clean and all of us will grow to become very responsible citizens’, so says Shatta Wale and so says Stonebwoy.
So, Shatta Wale of the Shatta Movement and Stonebwoy of the Bhim Nation, they will be speaking to all you young people of this country, will that not be a good thing? I think the only person who can do that is Madam Josephine Nkrumah,'' Prof Akosa stressed.
