Decongestion Exercise in Agbogbloshie ends

Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon Henry Quartey, has announced that plans are advanced for the management of the Regional coordinating Council (RCC) to kick start the second phase of the “Let’s Make Accra Work” agenda.

He made the disclosure at an event held in Accra to officially bring an end the first phase of the wide-reaching campaign, which include the successful relocation of the Agbogbloshie onion sellers and scrap dealers in the Ablekuma Central municipality.

The Regional Minister hinted that the Agbogbloshie Konkomba yam market will be next to be relocated, as part of activities to make Accra cleaner.

He said the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) was yet to engage the unions of yam and tomatoes traders to facilitate their relocation, which is expected to start in October this year.

According to him, the dirty gutters and activities of some individuals in the area pose threat, and raise concerns with regard to health, saying relocating them will be the best option.

Hon. Quartey commended President Akuffo-Addo for the opportunity given him and the maximum support to serve in the capacity as Greater Accra Regional Minister. He also lauded the Ministries of Defense and Interior, the National Security, the Regional Security Council and the staff of the Regional Coordinating Council for their unrelenting support in the cleaning and decongestion exercises.
