The management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited has paid homage to the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II and the Ga Traditional council.
The delegation was led by its Managing Director, Mrs. Gloria Opoku-Anti at his residence in Accra.
According to Mrs Opoku-Anti, the visit was to congratulate the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II on his enstoolment and further discuss areas for collaboration.
She said the chieftaincy institution is a very important stakeholder in the fight against bad environmental practices.
Mrs. Opoku-Anti believes traditional leaders have an influence on their subjects, hence their call on citizens to keep the environment clean will go a long way.
She seized the opportunity to explain to the king and his elders the company’s concept of the one million bin project, which is being carried out nationwide to improve the sanitary condition in the country.
She said the one million bin project is important because when one has a bin at home, it reduces the incidence of indiscriminate dumping, reduces the spread of communicable diseases such as Malaria, Diarrhoea, and Cholera among others.
She equally indicated that the project will promote Eco-Tourism and generate employment as well as revenue for the nation.
Mrs. Anti, called upon the Ga State to hold high peace during the upcoming Homowo celebration and asked for the blessings of the council for Zoomlion and its subsidiaries.
The Management of Zoomlion presented items including waste bins, water and assorted drinks and an amount of GHS20,000 to the Ga Mantse.
King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II on his part expressed appreciation to the Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies; Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong and the management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited for the wonderful gesture.
