Published

on

The Paramount Chief of Ga Traditional Area, His Majesty King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, has pleaged support in the promotion of the 1Million Bin concept being initiated in the current waste management of the Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZLG) to fight against bad environmental practice in Accra as well as the country as a whole.

The Ga Mantse appealed to all stakeholders including traditional officer holders and religious leaders to be part of such an initiative to make President Nana Akufo-Addo to achieve his vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, made the call when the management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited pays homage to the Ga Mantse and the Traditional council yesterday.

The delegation was led by its Managing Director- Mrs Gloria Opoku-Anti at his residence in Accra.

King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II expressed appreciation to the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies; Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong and the management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited for the wonderful gesture.

He applauded the company for the various waste management projects embarked upon nationwide.

The Ga Mantse used the occasion to share how he is seriously working hard with some key stateholders in the waste management sector to help improve environmental sanitation in the Ga State to supplement the vision of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

The Overlord of the Ga State sounded a word of caution to those who have been engaging in the environmental bad practices in Accra metrpolis to immediately stop since, according him, their continuous practices have contributed immensely to the pernnial flooding disasters in Accra during rainy seasons.

The Ga Mantse observed with grave concerned the growing phenomenon of indiscriminate dumping of waste and waste burning in some enclaves of Accra metropolis and warned those found of doing that should immediately stop such negative practice.

According to him, it is very bad for the residents to often dump their waste into open spaces, drains and rivers, which contributes to flooding in the communities in the Greater Accra Region.

Proper education of the public, the provision of more communal trash bins, and the collection of waste by private contractors, the Ga Mantse stressed could help prevent exposing the public in municipalities to diseases.

He stressed the urgent need of the government to utilise a mixed-method approach to ensure domestic waste disposal practice and perceptions of private sector waste management in urban community in Accra.

The Ga Mantse stated that waste poses a threat to public health and the environment if it is not stored, collected, and disposed of properly.

He noted that the perception of waste as an unwanted material with no intrinsic value has dominated attitudes towards disposal.

For her part, the MD of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mrs Gloria Opoku-Anti noted that the visit was to congratulate the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II on his enstoolment and further discuss areas for collaboration.

She reiterated the chieftaincy institution as a very important stakeholder in the fight against bad environmental practices within our communities and the country as a whole.

Mrs Anti believes “our Traditional Leaders have an influence on their citizens and calling on them to keep their environment clean will go a long way.

She seized the opportunity to explain to the King and his elders the company’s concept of the 1Million Bin Project which is being carried out nationwide as a very key plan towards the management of sanitation in the country.

This she explained to be important because when one has a bin at home, it reduces the incidence of indiscriminate dumping, reduces the spread of communicable diseases such as Malaria, Diarrhoea, and Cholera just to maintain a few.

She equally indicated that the project will promote Eco-Tourism and generate employment as well as revenue for the nation.

Mrs Anti, called upon the Ga State to hold high peace during the upcoming Homowo celebration and asked for the blessings of the council in upon the deliberations of the company.

The Management of Zoomlion presented items including Waste bins, Water and Assorted drinks and an amount of GHc20,000 to the Ga Mantse.

Representatives from Zoomlion Ghana Limited present were, Madam Emma Adwoa Appiah Osei-Duah-Director for Communications and Corporate Affairs, Mr. Ernest Morgan Acquah-General Manager Metropolitan Waste &Allied Services, Mr Daniel Ohene Obeng-Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr. Jephtah Tetteh-Communications & Corporate Affairs Officer, Mrs Grace Mensah-Personal Assistant to the MD and Edmond Out-Yeboah –Officer in charge of Audio-visuals.

Nigerian Canadian Singer & Songwriter Tomi Akanbi popularly & professionally known as Tome teamed up with hit record producing duo Legendury Beatz for her latest single which is an Amapiano hit titled ‘WAIT’.

The Single is the first song off her 12-track album: ‘No Long Talk’, which is set to be released early next year.

It’s been just over a year since Tome released her JUNO Award-winning Reggae single; “I Pray” which featured Jamaican superstar Sean Kingston, and she looks set to close this year out in style with this new Amapiano hit. The talented songstress crosses over successfully to the Amapiano sound & dominates the beat with her self assuredness, swagger & cheeky bravado on the delivery. Tome declares notably on The second bridge of the song that “even Aliko Dangote does not have my kind of money & even Otedola doesn’t have my kind of cash”, giving us a glimpse into Tome’s extremely lofty aspirations. 

The beat is distinguished by its high-pitched piano melodies, Kwaito basslines, and low tempo South African house rhythms blended with percussions which Tome glides on crisply with her vocals.

With Wait, Tome has delivered a masterpiece that the world can rock to not just during the end of the year festivities, but also into next year.

According to her, “She states that I want to dominate global sounds, Amapiano is a global sound; not just for now, but for the future. So I had to give it my best shot for the culture and to create something timeless with a life of its own that people in Africa and the World could vibe to”
