The Minister of Sanitation and Water Resources, Mrs Cecilia Dapaah has asked young women to reject the marriage proposals of men who have no decent toilet facilities in their homes.

The minister, who was speaking at the Ministry of Information, as part of an engagement with the media on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 in Accra, said it was undignifying for people, especially women, to be put in a position where they cannot have access to decent toilet facilities.

Mrs Dapaah said: “When your facility breaks down, meaning your toilet facility, please invest some money to maintain and reconstruct or rehabilitate it. It will help all of us.

“We know what sanitation gives to us, sanitation gives all of us dignity, especially we the women, so, I entreat all young ladies: if you’re marrying and the man doesn’t have a toilet in the home, please don’t agree.”

She also revealed that the ministry has launched guidelines for targeting the poor and vulnerable for basic sanitation services in Ghana.

“The ministry has launched, through the support of USAID and global communities, guidelines for targeting the poor and vulnerable for basic sanitation services in Ghana. The guideline is aimed at guiding the government and other sector partners to ensure equity and inclusion in the delivery of sanitation services”, she noted.
