Management of the National Service Scheme (NSS) has directed all National Service personnel in the Accra Metropolis to take part in the ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ exercise.

The exercise which will take place on Tuesday, February 1, 2022 is under the auspices of the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey as part of the government’s effort to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.

The Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council and the National Service Scheme will be in charge of the exercise.

In view of this, management of NSS has requested various heads of organisations hosting service personnel to release them for the exercise.

In a statement issued on Friday to announce the directive, the Scheme said, “Management of NSS entreats all service personnel to consider this exercise as a national duty and therefore calls on all personnel to come out in their numbers to support this worthy cause for a successful programme.”

All service personnel are expected to report at the Independence Square at 6 am on February 1 for the exercise.

Meanwhile, the Regional Minister, Henry Quartey has said all is set for the exercise to begin.

“We are very much ready; that is why we are starting on February 1, that is why we are going to pour more men and women on the streets, and that is why we are going to urge people to continue to observe cleanliness in their frontage and their immediate environments.”

“We’re starting the process of implementation, which includes persons that we have sent to training to pass out to come out now to assist in ensuring that there is strict adherence and compliance,” he said.
