The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com that Ghanaians should be careful about how they misuse water because it may soon go against them.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his fifth address to the nation Sunday [April 5, 2020] said the government will take care of the water bills for all Ghanaians for April, May and June 2020 following an increase in the country’s coronavirus cases amidst a partial lockdown of the epicenters of the disease.
He added that “Again, the Ghana Water Company Ltd and the Electricity Company of Ghana have been directed to ensure the stable supply of water and electricity during this period. In addition, there will be no disconnection of supply. Furthermore, the government will absorb the water bills for all Ghanaians for the next three months, ie, April, May, and June. All water tankers, publicly and privately-owned, are also going to be mobilized to ensure the supply of water to all vulnerable communities”.
“…by God grace, it will soon rain so don’t use the water for your gardens, and don’t use much water in washing your car, if not we will soon ban washing of cars, let all use our head and use water wisely”, Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah said.
