Addressing his congregation with a New Year message under the theme "Leadership", the "Generational thinking" pastor argued that the main reason for Accra's dirt streets and chocked gutters are the poor sanitation habits of persons living in the city.

"The ground never produces rubbish or bottles ... Accra is not dirty, it's the persons living in it that are dirty, Accra can't be dirty on its own" he argued.

Mensa Otabil's assertion follows a recent report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which shows that Ghana's capital city of Accra ranks as the most polluted city in the world with the measure of "very high" air pollution totaling 86.11 percent.
