We must all develop the habit of routinely cleaning our schools, homes, workplaces and open please and we must properly dispose of the waste we generate properly, ” he said.
The Chief of the area, Nana Besiyi II, expressed his profound gratitude to the MCE and the Assembly for the unflinching support.
