THE PARAMOUNT chief of Navrongo Traditional Area, Pe Dennis Aneaknoa Baunia Adda (Asagipari II) has called on the people of Navrongo and its catchment areas to adhere to all the safety protocols of COVID-19.
According to Asagipari, the government through the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development is working hard in ensuring the various markets, public places, and lorry parks in the country are all disinfected for the second time.
He made this statement when he participated in the second phase of the ongoing national disinfection exercise in Navrongo last Saturday, July 25, 2020.
Asagipari said even though Navrongo is clean there are still places where people leave garbage and therefore task the market women to always keep the streets clean.
He led the team of workers of Zoomlion, the Kasena Nakana Assembly, members of the military, police and prison services, and the Ghana national fire service to clean both the new and old Navrongo markets, the lorry park, toilets, and other public places.
Addressing journalists in Navrongo, the Municipal Coordinating Director of the Kasena Nakana Assembly, Alhaji Alhassam Ziblim Alhassan said the exercise is a collective effort from Zoomlion Ghana Limited and the Assembly.

He praises the people of Navrongo for complying with the directives of closing shops and other markets to make way for the exercise.
The Municipal Environmental Health Officer, Mr. Pious Akambe said the Assembly will keep on the higher mark choked in the area of sanitation fight and asked the people to support the chiefs, the assembly, and the security enforcement agencies to enforce the sanitation bi-laws.
