Sanitation must be made None-examinable Subject in schools to eradicate Filth – Environmental Health Analyst Suggests

An Assistant Environmental Health Analyst, has suggested and appealing to the Government of Ghana to make Sanitation a none-examinable subject from Basic education through to the Tertiary level as a way to Eradicate Filth in Ghana.

Mr. Eric Cudjoe who is an Assistant Environmental Health Analyst with the Upper Denkyira East Municipal Assembly, in the Central Region, lamented that Sanitation issues has been the greatest challenge in their job as Health Analysts, and Ghana as whole.

He made this appeal in his encounter with the media, and challenged them to push this agenda for the government’s consideration.

He however, acknowledged the existence of  the Sanitation Ministry and measures put in place by government in solving the problems on Sanitation, yet Ghanaians are still surrounded by filth.

Most of the subjects in the syllabus, He said, have gone a long way to reshape many school going children in Ghana, hence the need for the government to consider Sanitation as a course of study in school.

In doing so, according him, It will not only promote good health and well being, but will also boost tourism and inculcate entrepreneurship on the path of Ghanaians, as well as employment creation.

With his little experience and knowledge in Sanitation, Mr. Cudjoe, believes it will go a long way to help Ghanaians when it is well studied as a subject in schools.
