We Will Start Living With Garbage If We Don’t Change Our Attitude Towards Sanitation – Nakeeyat

Ghana’s favorite eight-year-old talented poet and sanitation ambassador, Nakeeyat Abdul Dramani Sam, has lamented on the poor attitude of Ghanaians towards sanitation.

Speaking in an interview with DJ Adviser on the Ayekoo After-Drive on Happy FM, Nakeeyat revealed that seeing people openly defecating when she was on her sanitation broke her tiny heart.

“There’s a school of thought that says when the last tree dies, the last man dies so for that man, all I can say to him is that if he doesn’t take care and the last tree dies, there will be big trouble”. Nakeeyat stated.

Sanitation is one of the difficult problems various stakeholders are trying to solve. Some time ago, law enforcers were made to arrest people who littered indiscriminately.

According to Nakeeyat, until Ghanaians change their attitude towards sanitation, the work of stakeholders will amount to nothing.

“We better change our attitude so we can develop otherwise, wahala dey…We can’t keep wasting resources on sanitation if the people responsible for the filth don’t change their attitude”. The young poet added.

On the 12th of June, 2019, the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources officially appointed young Nakeeyat as the Sanitation Ambassador for Ghana for the next 2 years. Since her appointment, she has embarked on various sanitation awareness campaigns around Accra, but is yet to extend her projects to other regions.
