SONA 2019: Addo condemns ‘Enfata yen’ open defecation


President Nana Akufo-Addo has bemoaned the practice of open defecation in some parts of the country, which, according to him, is eroding sanitation improvement efforts in the country.

Mr Akufo-Addo said: “It is unfortunate that in 2019, we will still have to revisit this topic”.

Delivering his third state of the nation address to parliament on Thursday, 21 February 2019, the president charged Ghanaians to desist from the practice, adding that: “Open defecation cannot be a characteristic of the country that is working to be transformed economically and to be counted among the developed nations of the world”.

He, therefore, noted that it was imperative that every household gets a toilet.
