Some angry commercial taxi drivers in the Awutu Bereku district of the Central Region have threatened to beat up the District Chief Executive and the Member of Parliament for the area if they call on them to partake in the National Sanitation Clean-up exercise again.

According to the angry taxi drivers, the DCE, Sampson Abbey Armah promised to pay them some amount of money but failed to live up to his promise after the exercise was completed on Saturday.
They accused the DCE of diverting the funds meant for the payment of hired equipments used for the clean-up exercise, as well as those earmarked for the drivers, to his friends and cronies.
“We have parked all our cars to come to this place and partake in the exercise because the DCE promised to give us something, I mean money.
“He was even supposed to pay for the equipment we used for the exercise but he has refused to pay and rather giving the money out to people who do not deserve it. If he (DCE) and (MP for the area) Hannah Tetteh dare to come to our station, we will beat them” one taxi driver told Cruzfmonline.com
The local government ministry introduced the monthly National Sanitation Day campaign in November 2014 to rid the country of filth after several hundreds of people died from a cholera outbreak.
Many Ghanaians did not take part in the exercise in November, prompting government officials across the country to put in more measures to whip up interest in subsequent months.
But the irate drivers have vowed not to partake in the exercise again.
