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.
The Ayawaso Municipal Health Directorate in collaboration with the Ayawaso Central Municipal Assembly is undertaking the administration of the Second Dose of Astrazeneca Vaccines across the Municipality.

N/B; Eligible Persons should come along with their COVID-19 Vaccination Card and a VALID NATIONAL ID CARD.
The Samira Empowerment and Humanitarian Project(SEHP) in collaboration with Ghana Export and Import Bank (GEXIM) on Monday, August 2 organized a one (1) day career event network for enterprise development learning through sewing for girls in the Municipality. SEPH is a non-profit organization founded with the purpose of engaging in effective and diverse social intervention projects aimed at contributing significantly to the advancement of the standard of living of Ghanaians. Its main objective is to improve the livelihood of 2000 underprivileged females through fashion related vocational training and enterprise development and to provide qualified workers for the fashion industry.
The program was launched in the Municipality with the Municipal Chief Executive in attendance. He expressed his gratitude to the SEPH officials for bringing this initiative to the Municipality to help the young girls.
Some 50 persons Living with Disabilities (PWD) have received their share from the Ayawaso Central Municipal Assembly’s (ACMA) Disability Fund.
The 50 were shortlisted from 114 PWDs who applied for the fund and were vetted.
Out of the 50, 27 received items such as deep freezers, laptops, sewing machines, refrigerators, photocopier machines, and popcorn machines, while one will undergo an apprenticeship programme. The remaining 22 will receive support in the form of perishable and non-perishable items to sell, including frozen fish, water, soft drinks, call cards, make-up accessories among others.
At a ceremony to hand over the items to the beneficiaries, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Alhaji Mohammed Quaye, explained that the move was in fulfillment of the government’s responsibility to support PWDs in the country as enshrined in the Constitution. He observed that with the needed support and opportunities, PWDs could drive the country’s economy forward, adding that disability was not inability, hence PWDs could not look down on themselves. “The potential of PWDs can be realized with the right assistance,” he said. He urged them to put the items to good use in order to derive the desired results needed to empower them economically.
The MCE further urged the beneficiaries to desist from selling the items donated to them.
“I promise to promote all PWDS within the ACMA as I have always done and it is my desire that all PWDs excel in whatever they do,’’ Alhaji Quaye said.
the Chairman of the assembly’s Disability Fund, Mr Abubakar Alhassan, noted that the monitoring team would embark on occasional visits to ensure the items are being used for their intended purposes.
The beneficiaries, on the other hand, thanked the assembly for the gesture and pledged to use the items to better their lives.
