The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, says the ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ policy has come to stay, thus people must comply to avoid being punished according to law.
Speaking on Adom FM’s Burning Issues, Mr Quartey said those who default will be prosecuted, and the court will determine how much the victims should pay as a fine. Failure to pay the fine will make the defaulter liable to at least one-year imprisonment.
“All the 29 Assemblies have passed that by-law which has been gazetted, making it a full by-law. Everyone is expected to clean their frontage, including gutters.
“The assemblies will make sure this by-law works. One will be arrested if they do not comply,” he told Akua Boakyewaa Yiadom.
The Minister added that implementing laws on ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ and a total ban on tricycles on Ghana’s highways will commence on Tuesday, February 1, 2022.
However, effective Monday, November 1, tricycles will be barred from plying the Accra-Tema motorway.
“The actual by-law will commence on February 1. After that, the assemblies will spend 90 days to educate people ahead of his operation,” he explained.
President Akufo-Addo, on Friday, October 22, launched the programme at the Independence Square.
Under this initiative, the citizens are expected to clean and clear any gutter in their respective surroundings to ensure cleanliness.
This forms part of the vision of the Greater Accra Regional Minister under the theme, ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’.
