Ghana loses GHC 420 million annually due to poor sanitation according to a study carried out by the Water and Sanitation Programme of the World Bank in 2010.

The findings were disclosed by Professor Yaw Oheneba-Sakyi, Director of the Institute of Continuing and Distance Education, at the opening of the 64th Annual New Year School and Conference in Accra on Monday.

Mr Alfred Okoe Vanderpuye, Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) on Tuesday outlined efforts to curb sanitation indiscipline in the city.

As part of the programme, the assembly had established three sanitation courts in Ablekuma Central, Okaikoi North and La Dadekotopon.

Nana Oduro Kwarteng, Chief Director, Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, has attributed the problem of poor sanitation in the country to mainly wrong attitudes in people.

“Solving the problem of poor sanitary conditions begins with us. It is highly an attitudinal issue,” he said on Tuesday in Accra, when he addressed the 64th Annual New Year School and Conference.
