Accra, July 28, GNA –
Mr Mohammed Adjei Sowah, the Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), has said
the Police have a role to play to ensure that traders do not sell on the
streets.

He cited the
Legislative Instrument (LI) 2180 of the Road Traffic Regulations, 2012, which
prohibits trading in the streets and on pavement walkways in the country.

Mr Adjei Sowah said
this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency when he paid a courtesy call on
the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, the Deputy Commissioner of Police
(DCOP) Osabarima Oware Asare Pinkro III.

The MCE paid the call
to outline his plans towards curbing insanitary conditions and indiscipline in
the Metropolis and to seek the support of the Police in his efforts.

He said there was the
need for the Police to play supportive role in the fight against poor
sanitation conditions and indiscipline.

“The time has come for
the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service
to live up to their mandate by ensuring that interventions are effected to make
it convenient for the people to live in comfort in the city,” Mr Adjei Sowah
said.

DCOP Asare Pinkro
expressed gratitude to the MCE for the visit and assured him of the assistance
of the Police in his endeavours to make the city of Accra safe for all
residents.

He said “We are not
going to fail in our responsibilities to the Government and the good people of
the country. We shall continue to be professional, transparent, patriotic and
loyal to the State and for that matter ensure adequate security for this year’s
Homowo Festival.”

He said the Police
would continue to support the Accra Metropolitan Assembly to make the security
of the people a priority.

DCOP Asare Pinkro took
the MCE to inspect huge human and vehicular traffic and the huge refuse in
front of the Central Police Station which could cause insecurity.
