The Chief of Party of Resilience in Northern Ghana (RING) a USAID funded project, Yunus Abdulai, has urged partners in the WASH sector to pay extra attention to urban sanitation which is stifling progress being made in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Sector.
He suggested that Tamale and Sanarigu which were not making any significant progress through the Community Led Total Sanitation programme, may require newer strategies and interventions different from the other smaller communities where open defecation free is being is achieved.
Yunus, made the remark at the 4th inter district ODF league table launch in Tamale where the Mion District was adjusted first position followed by Tatale/Sanguli. East Mamprusi ranked 3rd, while Yendi municipal took the 14th position, with Tolon scoring 19th.
Tamale scored the least points in the latest ODF league table for the 3rd successive time and that remains a major concern for stakeholders especially, being the regional capital and hub for NGO activities in Northern Ghana. Tamale’s Neighbors; Savelugu and Sanarigu were ranked 22nd and 24th respectively in the ODF league table.
Now let’s do some analysis on why the Tamale metropolis has consistently underperformed in termed of the ODF rankings.
