According to her, several contacts made to the Assembly over the current state of the toilet which had currently turned into a death trap, she claimed has fallen on deaf ears.
"The problem is the (Manhole), chamber has collapsed and the area is open to breed mosquitoes and flies which may eventually lead to outbreak of diseases such as cholera, typhoid and malaria. The building is hanging and is about to collapse in no time" she said.
Speaking to the media, the Assembly member further stated that the situation needed swift attention from authorities to avoid any form of disaster in the small community.
She blamed the assembly and municipal health Directorate for doing little to help salvage the situation and thus added that the Assembly and Health Department should be blamed if any disaster should befall the community.
She appealed to the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr. Kupualor Ebenezer Tetteh MCE to come to their aid before disaster could happen.
