President John Dramani Mahama has said that the next NDC administration under his watch will work towards ending the age-old menace of open defecation by 2021.
The President said this at the Banquet Hall of the State House on Tuesday, where he gave highlights of his party’s manifesto for the 2016 polls in December.
The President, who was explaining what his administration’s policy on sanitation would be for the next four years if voted into power, said “Our target is to end open defecation by the year 2021; in the next five years. In the next five years, we want to ensure that nobody has to go and do his business outside in the bush or on the beach or anywhere. And so we will invest massively in providing toilet facilities all over the country.”
