Mr.Kpeh disclosed that since 2012 the issue of establishing a WASH commission has been talked about but no action has been taken. He made the statement when he appeared on Capitol FM breakfast radio program, the Capitol Breakfast Club on yesterday.
He is therefore calling on the government through the WASH sector’s Board member institutions to be passionate about tackling the issue of water and sanitation in the country.
The Executive Director expressed frustration that there are ministries and agencies on the WASH Board but they are so fragmented to the extent that they are not assuming their role.
He said that establishing the commission will go a long way in helping to achieve the WASH goal under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The CSO boss said until this is done, the sector will remain unproductive. He added that having a bunch of Directors is just one aspect and more needs to be put in place to show some level of seriousness.
Mr.Kpeh noted that establishing the commission will also help to deal with the issues of accountability and transparency in the sector.
He cautioned community dwellers to take good care of the already existing WASH projects in their various localities.
