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 by-law that requires occupants of properties 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, the Ghana Armed Forces and the Ghana Police Service throng there to enforce the law of environmental cleanliness.
