AMA committed to riding the capital of filth


Mr Stanley Adjiri Blankson, Mayor of Accra on Saturday said the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) would continue to work hard to ensure that the city was devoid of filth.

He said government had taken keen interest in sanitation especially in the cities.

Mr Blankson made these remarks when he toured some sub-metros within the AMA to monitor how the clean-up exercise initiated by the Waste Management Unit of the Assembly was undertaken.

The clean-up, which is one of the core functions of the Assembly, is also in line with the government's policy of ensuring sound environmental cleanliness.

The Mayor's tour took him to Korle Gonno, Makola, Zongo Junction, Nima, La and parts of Osu where Sanitary workers of Zoomlion and AMA were busily going about their duty.

He called for community participation and hoped that the exercise would be sustained.
