Keep your frontages clean – GAR Minister


The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey – who is leading day-two of a three-month intensive ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ exercise in the Greater Accra Region – has compelled shop-owners, Okada Boys, lorry park operatives, landlords and other property owners to physically clean their frontages in accordance with the sanitation bye-law that requires occupants of property and spaces to ensure their frontages and surroundings are kept clean at all times.

He warned residents of Avenor and Kaneshie, Abufu etc. when the joint team from the Regional Coordinating Council, Metropolitan and Municipal Assemblies (MMDAs), Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Ghana Armed Forces and Ghana Police Service thronged there to enforce the law on environmental cleanliness.

He however warned the Operations Team that he has not instructed anybody to seize properties of market women, only to ensure that their frontages are clean.
He urged Taskforces of the assemblies to enforce the law according to its letter and spirit.
The exercise started on Monday, October 3 and will end by end of 2022 for the team to make reviews for further action.

The minister was accompanied by the Executive Chairman of Zoomlion, Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, military commanders and technical directors from the RCC.
