As part of the Regional Minister’s directive, the Ayawaso Central Municipal Assembly has undertaken a sensitization campaign on “Operation Clean Your Frontage” on the 1st February 2022 in their Municipality.
Speaking with the Media, the Municipal Chief Executive of Ayawaso Central, Alhaji Mohammed Quaye said, keeping our surroundings clean must happen naturally and shouldn’t be a compulsion. “However, it has become necessary to apply the law since we as a people have failed to do this on our own”, he stated.
The “Operation Clean Your Frontage” which aims to enforce sanitation regulation within the Greater Accra Region, is part of the Regional Minister’s initiative “Let’s make Greater Accra work” and is championed by the Regional Coordinating Council.
The MCE explained that residents who have their shops close to drains owe it a responsibility to clean the gutters regularly, the same way they sweep their shops, rooms and houses on daily basis. He warned residents with properties situated less than four feet from the gutter to shift backwards to allow for the mandatory pedestrian walkaway as prescribed by the Municipal bye-law. He explained to residents that they don’t need to wait for the official launch to observe good sanitation practices. “The way we bath our bodies everyday should be the same way we must keep our surroundings clean”, he said.
