This report was not treated lightly by social media users at all.
Below were some of the reactions
Dar Lington asked and stated:
Have they provided dustbins in town to throw waste in???? Senseless arrest If you fix the country by providing dustbins on every joint the citizens will also fix themselves of putting it in. Simple Logic
Odogwu Zamani said:
Even the officers standing there throw rubbish in the gutter but ah well. We thank God for their hard work done let’s hope this helps clean the country. Kudos. That nigga will clean gutter today it will shock him.
Fred Gnanih mentioned:
Let them come to Dzorwulu. Their presence will be a valuable support to residents who are trying hard to keep gutters free of rubbish and a deterrent to recalcitrant people who keep littering
Meanwhile, in an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, indicated that making Accra the cleanest city in Africa has been achieved by 85 per cent.
According to her, when the lockdown was imposed in Accra and certain parts of the country, 100 per cent sanitation was achieved, but the dirt started emerging when the restrictions were eased.
She made this known while speaking to the media as part of a sanitation tour and cleanup exercise in parts of Maamobi in Accra on Tuesday, August 11.
