The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will on this Saturday [November 16, 2019] embark on a nationwide weeding and clean-up exercise to honour its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
This comes barely a week after John Mahama cleared some weeds in the capital – an action the party says is worthy of emulation and also a clear indication that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has failed in the country’s sanitation drive.
In a memo written to all its constituency organizers, the NDC said this exercise is aimed at addressing the sanitation conditions in every part of the country.
According to the party, the act of Mr. Mahama resummoned the spirit of the National Sanitation Day which was introduced by him.
Former President John Dramani Mahama on Saturday led a section of his security detail to clear overgrown weeds in the median of the Mahama Road.
The overgrown weeds obstruct the view of motorists, especially towards the roundabout.
