Mr. Joseph Ayuboya, Acting Northern Regional Manager of Zoomlion Ghana Limited has tasked the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to enforce the sanitation bye-laws by prosecuting offenders who litter indiscriminately.

He said the major challenge facing Zoomlion was the inability for the MMDAs to enforce the sanitation bye-laws, thereby giving leverage to the populace to litter the environment with the notion that ‘Zoomlion will clean the street’ ,saying that, such attitude of Ghanaians must change.

Mr. Ayuboya raised these issues in Tamale on Saturday during a cleaning exercise embarked by Zoom Alliance, a subsidiary of the Zoomlion, which has been mandated to keep the country clean of filth for the next three months.

The special clean-up exercise saw members of the sanitation taskforce who were recently recruited, cleaning the Aboabo market, Kaladan park, Tamale Zongo, Choggu and the Dakheima palace whilst similar exercises were simultaneously taking place in all the districts of the region.

The initiative is largely in tandem with the vision of the company in promoting clean, green and healthy communities in the country to deepen the good sanitation agenda to ensure a healthy environment in response to a national programme launched earlier by the President.

Mr. Ayuboya said the task force would go from door to door educating Ghanaians about sound environmental and sanitation practices, helping in waste collections, desilting choked gutters and evacuating heap refuses till December 2012.

He called for the unflinching support and cooperation of all stakeholders in the sanitation industry to ensure the successful implementation of the project, stressing that, the task force would not be working in isolation but with expert advice, monitoring and supervision.

He called on the general public, religious leaders and traditional authorities to pull efforts together to ensure that the nation was kept clean to prevent communicable diseases.
