Residents of Guree concerned over lack of public toilet in community

Residents of Guree community in the Sombo East Electoral Area of the Nadowli-Kaleo District have expressed concerns about the lack of a public toilet in the community.

They said the availability of a public toilet at the community would help serve the emergency needs of visitors and travelers passing through the community as well some residents at the community who cannot afford to construct latrines in their homes.

Speaking in an interview with Info Radio at the community, the residents appealed the government, Nadowli-Kaleo District Assembly, and benevolent organizations to come to their aid by providing them with public toilet facility.

Mr. Yaw Kyebambo said that the lack of public toilet in their community is really a major challenge to them.

Mr. Majeed Salifu, another resident of the community, observed that the unavailability of public toilet in the community has led most of the people in Guree community to practice open defecation as they cannot afford to construct latrines in the houses.

The chief of Guree community, Naah Alphonsus Siibu stressed the need for the public toilet facility in their community.

Meanwhile, the government of Ghana is advocating the need for every household to own a latrine rather than depending on government for public toilets as the management of public toilets is usually a challenge.
