The Adentan Municipal Assembly (AdMA) as part of its efforts to maintain a clean environment held a pilot and a durbar at the Adentan Lorry Park on the 26th of December, 2022 to launch the “Operation Clean Your Frontage” program as part of the national agenda to increase sanitation in the Country.
Speaking at the launch was the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) Hon. Daniel Alexander. Nii-Noi Adumuah. In his address, he stated that the event is to create awareness of what is required of the general public especially people within the Adentan municipality. He encouraged individuals who work, reside, or pass through Adentan to serve as a watchdog to one another by drawing the attention of people who wrongfully dispose of refuse. According to the MCE, Operation Clean Your Frontage takes effect from 1st February 2022 accompanied by by-laws and sanctions.
Hon. Joseph Odai-Boye the presiding Member (PM) laid emphasis on the fact that the initiative has been embraced by all Assembly members and Unit committee members since it will reduce the spread of malaria and other diseases. As such, they will support the initiative by assisting in educating and distributing the by-laws governing the initiative to people to keep the public in order.
However, the Regional Environment Health Officer (REHO) Mr. Douglas Tagoe appealed to the individuals, corporate bodies, and the general public to take responsibility for maintaining a clean environment. He also mentioned that offenders would be dealt with by the law accordingly.
The durbar had the likes of some Senior Officers from the National Security Agencies, Traditional Leaders, Assembly Members and Unit Committee Members, Heads Of Department and Staff Of the Assembly, Residents Associations, Market Executives, Corporate Bodies, Transport Unions and Solid Waste Collectors,
