There was spontaneous jubilation among residents of Nsoatre in the Sunyani West District, when the District Chief Executive (DCE),  Mrs. Agnes Kusi, inaugurated a 10-seater water closet toilet for the town.

According to some of the residents, the opening of the facility for public use would end open defecation, which was a major health hazard in the community.

They told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in a random interview that for some time now, one out of the two public toilets in the town had been out of use, a situation, which had compelled some residents to either defecate openly or in bush.

Others have to join queues for longer periods, especially in the morning before they can attend the only public toilet, which caters for thousands of people in the town.

Mrs Kusi said the Assembly had set up a committee that identified and addressed the immediate needs of communities in the district.

She explained that the facility would help promote good sanitation in the area, explaining that since the Assembly alone could not shoulder development responsibilities, it had deepened the public-private partnership policy.

Mrs Kusi stressed the Assembly’s commitment to ensure equitable distribution of development projects to the various communities.
