Lydia Forson has responded to the president’s comments about him not being ready to use taxpayers’ monies to fix the drains if Ghanaians continue to litter.
The social activist shared her displeasure with president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo comments on Twitter. According to her, the president’s utterances are unfortunate and insensitive to the plight of Ghanaians during the rainy season.
“It’s only privileged people who don’t have to shit in KVIP that think if there’s a water closet people won’t use. Fix the system, and you can punish people for dumping refuse in gutters. But don’t talk to us like we’re some animals with no sense.”
Lydia Forson also pointed out that attitudinal change should start from the leaders before trickling down to the masses.
“As usual, blaming citizens for not doing your jobs!! For years in my area there we had to would pile rubbish for several weeks and hope those little trucks will show up. You can only BOLDLY punish people when you’ve provided them with places to dump rubbish.”
