President John Mahama issued a Septmber 2014 ultimatum, for Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to complete the street naming and house numbering exercises in their areas by September next year.
MMDCEs who fail to meet the deadline will lose their jobs.
This follows an earlier directive to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development in March, 2013, to implement the street naming exercise within 18 months.
The exercise has already started with pilot programmes in the Ashanti and Western regions.
Addressing the opening of an orientation programme for the MMDCEs in Accra Tuesday, president Mahama charged them to meet the deadline.
“You are drivers of development and change in your districts and that is why I don’t understand why our streets have still not been numbered.
The extent to which MMDCE's will continue to stay in office will depend on how diligently you apply yourself to the street naming and house numbering exercise,” he stressed.
