The Morning show host of Rainbow Radio International, Prince Kwame Tutu has launched a campaign to put pressure on the government of Ghana to as a matter of urgency clean the cities of Ghana of the filth engulfing the nation.
He has for months now been calling on the authorities to clean the city as promised by the ruling NPP government in its election manifesto.
Failing to achieve his aim, the patriotic son of Ghana has launched a campaign on social media to solicit support to put pressure on the government to clean the cities.
Launching the campaign with the #CleanGhanaNow, Kwame Tutu made a statement to explain the intention behind the campaign.
READ HIS FULL STATEMENT BELOW
Fellow countrymen and women, let us save our selves and unborn generations by embarking on the above social media campaign to call the attention of our government to the insanitary abyss the Nation Ghana is falling into.
It is said, a healthy Nation is a wealthy Nation.
Looking at the number of countrymen/women who attends hospital in a day with preventable diseases caused by filth such as typhoid, diarrhea, cholera, malaria, dysentery etc, we can not say our Nation is healthy and therefore cannot be wealthy.
The cost of living in filth is priceless.
Millions are dying due to the dirty environment we live in.
Millions are losing huge amounts due to medical care.
Government expenditure on health keeps soaring due to the filthiness of our environment. Fact is our very existence is 100% dependent on the environment we live in.
Let’s do this together.
Note, this campaign is not political.
It’s a campaign to save our lives from the outbreak of diseases that can wipe all of us away untimely. Tweet or post as many as you can in a day. You can add photos of dirty places to send the message.
