The government’s agenda of ending open defecation around the country in line with the Sustainable Development Goals 6, may not come to reality, as the non- cooperation of some Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) in the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the Ghana First Company, has resulted in the stalling of the construction of over 800 ultra-modern toilet facilities across the country.
The construction of the Ultra-modern toilet facilities is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement between the Ministry of Local Government and Ghana First Company for the construction of Modern Toilet Facilities nationwide in deprived communities.
Interacting with the Media at one of the project sites at Nsawam in the Eastern Region, the CEO of Ghana First, Frank Okulley, stated that the refusal of the MMDAs to submit Land Title Documents on the lands provided contractors for the building of the modern toilet facilities, despite signing the Undertakings, has delayed the company’s arrangements to secure funding from the banks for the payment of contractors.
One of the contractors undertaking the Modern Toilet Facility projects, used the opportunity to appeal to the government to intervene in the impasse, as the situation has rendered their funds locked up in the project.
