Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of private waste management company Zoomlion, Kofi Siaw Agyapong has stated that the capital, Accra can boast of being one of the cleanest cities in the World.
Speaking at a sanitation forum in Accra on Friday, 9 March, Mr Agyapong who shocked the audience with his comments indicated: “When you look on the streets now, everywhere is clean, everywhere is neat.”
He explained: "I said neat because you have not moved to other African countries. When you move to The Gambia and other places and you come back to Accra, you think that Accra is the new London.
“Sometimes do the benchmarking with other countries that you have visited.
“I have visited some countries and I think we are doing well,” Mr Agyapong insisted, admitting, however, that: “Even though we are not there yet, we are doing well.”
