The residents of Fumesua Okyerekrom a suburb of the Ejisu Municipalilty in the Ashanti Region have expressed dissatisfaction over the unhygienic and poor state of public toilets run by the authorities of Okyerekrom.
According to residents who use the facility, the state of the public toilets are shockingly bad despite the fact that the local authorities collect monies from residents who access and use the facility.
The residents disclosed that before the toilets were built, there was a structure raised by government for the residents adding that it was free of charge until the developer loosen it to raise his public toilet to make gains from the people of the area.
The residents further said that though monies are collected from people in the area who use the toilets, there has been no improvements by the owner with regards to the conditions there.
They hinted that there are no lights in the toilet rooms and due to that, people often eased themselves in the the bush instead of patronizing the toilet facility after 6pm.
The residents have therefore challenged the local council and mangers of the toilet facility to ensure that the place would have lights and meet acceptable sanitary standards to prevent risking the lives of users.
