No toilet, no light – MCE orders

Mr Teddy Ofori, Municipal Chief Executive for Hohoe has asked the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), not to give electricity metres to households without toilet facilities.

He said the initiative had become necessary for the Municipality to achieve its open defecation free status.

Mr Ofori who was addressing ECG Customer Open Day in Hohoe, said the collaboration would help the Assembly to enforce its sanitation laws and beautify the Municipality.

Earlier this year, the MCE declared that households within the Municipality without toilet facilities by December 2018 would be sanctioned and explained that the sanctions could be in the form of fines or six months imprisonments in default.

He said the sanctions would discourage open defecation towards creating healthy environment for business and leisure.

Mr Ofori said though the Municipality was ranked amongst the best performing in the Region, it was still low on the sanitation indicator and called for support of all.
