Parliament of Ghana Approves GHC 100000 for the Branding of 2 Newly Built Public Toilets in Nima
In recent times, the term branding has become a very important word to the government of Ghana. As a result, government has spent a lot of tax payers’ money to brand various things in the country such as buses, taxis and roads. This they claim will give the country an aesthetic facelift.
Recently, government branded 116 buses with each branded bus costing over GHC31, 000 or so. Most Ghanaians are happy and this has increase the patronage of these buses—people jump on them with joy and enthusiasm.
The joy with which Ghanaians embraced this new spending mode really impressed government. This has motivated the NDC government to go into branding anything brandable.
It has therefore been agreed that every new infrastructure would be branded before use.
Following this agreement, Parliament has approved a budget of GHC 100,000 for the branding of two newly built public toilets in Nima—subject to the usual opposition walk out during the deliberation.
The branding will be carried out by Smarttys Management and Productions, the best name in branding in Ghana.
The public toilet will be branded with the pictures of the President, John Dramani Mahama, ex-presidents and the leader of the Ghana Christian Council.
The building will be painted in the national colors and the toilet rolls that will be used will also have the
president’s picture on them.
Branding is supposed to be completed before the end of January for the President to have a first taste of the public toilet before it’s opened to the public.
