Accra, Aug. 3, GNA – The Accra Metropolitan
Assembly has reminded residents in the metropolis of the incoming National
Sanitation Day exercise on Saturday, August 5.

It therefore directed that all commercial
activities in Accra must remained closed from 0600 hours to 1000 hours for the
people to actively participate in the exercise to clean their surroundings.

The directive was given in a statement signed by Mr
Sam Ayeh-Datey, the Accra Metropolitan Co-ordinating Director and copied the
Ghana Agency on Thursday.

The statement said in pursuance of the directive
there would be vigorous enforcement of the Accra Metropolitan Sanitation
Bye-laws of 1995.

“This will help the AMA to achieve President Nana
Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa,”
the statement said.

It said it was the civic responsibility of
community members to undertake clean-up exercises to make the environment safe
to facilitate good health.

The statement urged organisations to support in the
exercise to help revive the self-help spirit in the people.

The National Sanitation Day was instituted in 2014
by the government for the citizens to embark on clean-up exercises in the first
Saturday in a month across the country.
