The Greater Regional Minister has publicly criticized some Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives over the level of filth in the national capital, Accra.
During a meeting with the MMDCEs on Monday, August 14, Henry Quartey expressed his strong dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs in the Greater Accra region.
He called out a few of the MMDCEs who he says had left their jurisdictions in filth.
“Have you been seeing people working with ‘aboboyaa’ [Tricycle] still on our motorway? Can we say it is hardworking? Trotro is still loading around Accra Mall, is that hardworking? Korley Klottey – rubbish around graphic road – hardworking? AMA, Kinbu, Tudu everywhere rubbish – hardworking?” he quizzed.
“I want us to mark ourselves. Hon. Agbana, Agbogbloshie has been turned into a refuse dump. Is it hardworking? Are you aware that the place we cleared people are still dumping?
But Mr Agbana chipped in to say that the place is no longer a refuse dump since last month – July.
Mr Quartey, who was not enthused with his response asked whether he remembers when the clearing of the place was done and when it took him to prevent people from dumping at the site.
He continued that the ‘aboboyaa’ [Tricycles] are still plying the motorway although various conversations have been had on that.
He, therefore, urged the MMDCEs to take a strong view on the movement of tricycles in the capital city with an impending restriction on their movement.
