The minister of sanitation and water resources, Cecelia Abena Dapaah, has assured Ghanaians that landfill sites in the country would soon be transformed.
According to her, the government is determined to re-engineer landfill sites across the country as part of its sanitation drive.
She further noted that the landfill sites would soon look like sites fit to serve as venues for weddings.
The minister passed these comments on the sidelines of the delivery of the 2020 budget by the minister of finance, Ken Ofori-Atta.
Per a report by 3news.com, she went on to say that she expects her sector to receive an adequate allocation of the budget in order to execute some of its projects.
The projects, she explained, include the ‘One Household One Toilet’ programme and the distribution of over 5,000 waste bins across the country.
In other news, YEN.com.gh is in possession of a video in which the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ada, Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe Ghansah, is seen sharing chewing gum to colleague MPs.
The motive behind the act is to help them stay awake during the course of the 2020 budget presentation by the minister of finance.
The gum was distributed to both sides of the House and Ghansah is seen moving from chair to chair handing out the gums to others who had their arms stretched to receive them.
The move was to prevent half-sleepy MPs from falling asleep so they could pay full attention to the finance minister.
