The Greater Accra Regional Minister has indicated that sanitation has no political colour in his ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ project.

Speaking in an interview on Joy News‘ The Probe, Henry Quartey called on all and sundry irrespective of their political affiliations, ideologies and beliefs to help him achieve his agenda of decongesting, demolishing of unauthorised structures as well as ridding the city of filth.

“When the June 3, flooding came and it was washing people away, it didn’t check whether they belong to NDC or NPP so the let’s make Accra work project is a matter for us to all put our hands on deck devoid of our political ideologies or belief,” he stressed.

According to Henry Quartey, before he undertook his project, he met with leaders of both sides of the political party along with 34 constituency chairmen and Parliamentarians in Accra and sold out his vision to them.

“Prior to this exercise I took my time to engage series of stakeholders. I started with my own party. Constituency chairmen across the region because charity begins at home. I have to let them know what my vision is. A man going to battle has only two things in his mind: you win and you come home with the trophy, you lose and you don’t come back.”

“That meeting I invited the Chairman of the NDC Greater Accra, Hon Ade Coker, I invited the Chairman of NPP in Greater Accra, I invited the Member of Council of State E. T. Mensah and Stanley Nii Adjei Blankson and we sat in the room at the Accra International Conference Center for over two hours and they gave their overwhelming support because you see sanitation has no political colour,” he added.

He also acknowledged that although he may be championing the course together with relevant stakeholders, he will fail should the residents act indifferent towards the campaign.

“I am pleading with listeners and viewers, that let us work together to make the region in which we sleep, do business, go to church, and make profit to build and go to our funerals and look good, let us make it work. So it is not about what I can do or how much I can do but it is what we can do as a people that matter,” he told host Emefa Apawu.
