According to him, day-to-day involvement in the hygienic health project Operation Clean Communities, will grant them the latitude to collectively assume the ownership of the project and reap the benefits accordingly.

Delivering a speech that focused on Operation Clean Communities during Akwasidae ceremony at the Omanhene’s Palace in Koforidua on Sunday 16th May 2021, the former Government Statistician Daasebre  Professor Emeritus Oti Boateng spelt out the "need for all citizens to be involved as owners of the project". 

Daasebre Oti Boateng's latest call at the historic Akwasidae gathering is in consonance with the "Kigali example, which depends on unique collaboration between the city authority, waste management organisations and the citizens for its success, was particularly emphasised as exemplifying a bottom-up approach within a root-based development philosophy". 

Daasebre Oti Boateng has observed that the country can turn its huge menacing waste into real massive wealth provided the communities and the citizens therein are included in such programmes.

He noted that "Rwanda has a well regulated monitoring structure with a citizens ownership where the greening and agriculture system depends on the transformation of waste into fertilisers". 

A lot of by-products could also be made from waste to create jobs and wealth.

But such objectives can only be optimised if the citizens are committed to the projects in an inclusive manner".

Meanwhile, Daasebre Oti Boateng is scheduled to  meet with all the root-based institutional members on Tuesday 18th May at 10.30am on the Operation Clean Communities project.

Daasebre Professor Emeritus Oti Boateng is currently the Chancellor of All Nations University, the first Ghanaian to Chair United Nations Statistical Commission, former President of Eastern Regional House of Chiefs and has several books and papers to his credit.
