The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Henry Quartey, has held a meeting with members of the Greater Accra Caucus of Parliament to solicit their input and support for the passage of a new bye-law to tackle sanitation in the region.
Dubbed “Operation Clean Your Frontage”, the bye-law which formed part of the ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ campaign would see the reintroduction of sanitation inspection by environmental health officers to homes and offices within the Greater Accra Region.
The Minister, who was courting the support of the caucus, said the indiscipline and filth that had engulfed the region must be brought to an end. He stated that the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) would strengthen its relationship with the caucus and work hand in hand with them.
He implored the members of the caucus to deliberate on the draft bye-law and make relevant inputs for its consideration and approval by assembly members at the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies in the region.
Present at the meeting were the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Devine Agohorm, a former mayor of Accra, Mr. Stanley Adjiri Blankson, representatives of the National Democratic Congress and leaders from both sides of the caucus.
