Some social media users have received the news with cynicism, describing it as a ploy by the ruling government to hoodwink voters ahead of planned elections in November.

Dubbed, 'A Toilet at Half Price', the project forms part of the implementation of the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA) - Sanitation and Water Project (SWP) Rapid Response Initiative (RRI), the Daily Graphic reported on Thursday.

The GAMA-SWP, the report said, is targeted at improving sanitation, water supply and to strengthen the management of environmental sanitation with emphasis on low-income urban areas within Greater Accra.

The project is expected to make affordable toilet facilities available to the selected households and also strengthen the management of environmental sanitation in Greater Accra.

As part of the plan, toilet facilities suitable for the various households in the selected communities would be constructed for interested households at half the price.

The owners of those houses would pay half the price of the facilities constructed and the assembly would bear the remaining cost.

Chorkor, Sabon Zongo, Glefe, Mampose and Gbegbeyise are some communities that are expected to benefit from the project.
