Speaking at a monthly symposia of Achimota School, on the theme:A nation divided…that all may be one, Mr Nsarkoh cemented his thoughts with a quote from the Chief Officer at the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) stating, "WASH estimates that Ghana will take 500 years to eliminate the practice due to the slow pace at which strategies, laws and interventions are being implemented.
