The Metropolitan Chief Executive for the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Dr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, has tasked elements working within the Assembly’s jurisdiction to think outside the box.

Alfred Okoe VanderpuijeHe said innovative ways of dealing with challenges have become the order of the day and expects the Unit Committee members under the assembly to show innovation.
According to him, solutions to a problem cannot always be solved by an individual and therefore expects the Unit Committee members to live up to expectation by finding solutions to problems.

For example, he mentioned that the sanitation challenges have become issues which require the ingenuity of all.

Inaugurating 380 unit committee members in Accra yesterday, the Mayor charged them to find innovative ways of handling solid and liquid wastes.

The inauguration of the unit committee members comes on the heel of the inauguration of the councilors for the AMA three weeks ago.

In view of this, he also charged the councilors to work together with the unit committee members to get results.

“It is my expectation that from this moment, members of the committee together with councilors would join hands with the assembly members in the development of their various electoral areas,’’ he emphasized.

He has also threatened to make unannounced visits to the various electoral areas to inspect how hard they have been working with innovation with respect to sanitation in the respective areas.

The aim is to ensure the achievements of the President’s mission of transforming Ghana and changing lives of Ghanaians.

He cautioned them against compromising on standard and the rules, saying he expects them to stand firm and make sure justice is done at all times with people.

‘’Let‘s work for what is right, therefore, do not allow people to build any structure without permit from AMA and always make sure that residents in your electoral areas contribute in the national sanitation day in order to have a sound environment,” he stressed .
