Assembly Clean-up

Mr Daniel Akuffo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Shai Osudoku in the Greater Accra Region has urged Ghanaians to rekindle their communal spirit to clean the environment to prevent diseases.

He said this would help in supporting the Greater Accra Regional Minister’s agenda of “Making Accra Work” while keeping with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

Mr Akuffo gave the advice in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after leading the Environmental Health Unit of the Shai Osudoku District Assembly to undertake a massive clean-up exercise in the area.

He said embarking on clean-up was not the responsibility of the Assembly alone and that the citizens must actively get involved while urging them to change their negative attitude of disposing of liquid and solid wastes into drains which eventually cause flooding.

The DCE said the Assembly has carried out education on cleanliness and warned that soon the bye-laws would be made to bite harder to whip people into line on environmental hygiene.

Mr Akuffo advised the public to desist from the habit of littering indiscriminately.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
