Ghana officially the Republic of Ghana, in West Africa standing on the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean with a landmass of 238,535 km2 (92,099 sq mi), remains interesting to visit. Bounded by Ivory Coast in the West, Burkina Faso in the North, Togo in the East and the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean in the South.
Among its many Municipality is Ejura, a town and the capital of Ejura/Sekyedumase, a district in the Ashanti Region. Ejura has a settlement population of 70,807 people and is the largest maize producing district in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. It is in the Far North of the region, near the Afram River, records have shown.
The people of the Ejura Municipality think all stakeholders and Governmental agencies within the Asante Region should come to their aid as their life is in grave danger.
Reports say the Municipality is known by records to be one of those municipalities in Ghana which records a higher mortality rate during the Cholera outbreak.
Using this as a reference, a lot has to be done to reduce the spread of this deadly illness when there is such an outbreak. There is a need to look critically at human activities that steer the spread of Cholera.
The state of public KVIP which is located close to the center of the Municipality is a is dire straits to the people. There is a need for Municipal Assembly to take immediate action and intervene in this predicament.
As the saying goes; “Your Health is Your Life.” The environment within which one is living has a greater influence on ones’ health and for that matter, there is the need to attend to issues in the environment with proper attention.
