Assembly makes strides in curbing open defecation

toilotFor sometimes now, the country has been battling with open defecation, a situation many have attributed to inadequate availability of toilet facilities.

The situation even get worse when landowners do not see the need to made provision of toilet facilities an integral part of their building plans compelling people to resort to defecating in surrounding bushes and other unapproved places.

However, many district assemblies have taken some measures to curtail the situation with the provisions of more public toilet facilities to help at least people who do not have in their homes to access them.

They also went further by making it mandatory for every new property developer to include toilet facilities as requirement for obtaining building permits.

The West Mamprusi District Assembly has however made strides in providing a number of institutional toilet facilities for a number of schools to help discourage the practice of open defecation.
