The host said, ‘’Welcome to Ghana where we have not been able to fight sanitation and so we give out mosquito nets to prevent malaria. Welcome to Ghana where we enjoy living in filth and we buy mosquito coils to prevent malaria whereas we know that malaria is caused by filth.
Welcome to Ghana, where common communicable diseases like Cholera, malaria and others continue to kill Ghanaians. Welcome to Ghana where at 60, we depend on the IMF for a bailout.
