AMA clears illegal structures, over grown weeds in Okaikoi South


The Okaikoi South Sub Metropolitan District Council of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), has begun an exercise to clear walkways of illegal structures and over grown weeds that have taken over the central reservations within its jurisdiction.

The exercise saw the removal of structures and desilting of drains from the Darkuman Mantse Palace area to Cable and Wireless and the weeding of overgrown weeds on the J A. Kufour Avenue in Accra starting from Avenor   through to Abeka Junction near Peace FM. 

According to sub-metro Director, Mr. Samuel T. Mormor, the exercise would be extended to cover areas such as the Ring road, starting from the Obetsebi roundabout, through State Transport Company (STC), the VIP bus terminal to the Ghana Industrial Holding Corporation (GIHOC) roundabout near the New Times Corporation.

He said the exercise would pave way for planting of ornamental plants along the central reservations as part of the Assembly's beautification programme. 

However, he encouraged Ghanaians to continue to support the efforts by the Assembly in keeping the city clean.

"There is a lot of work to be done to ensure that our city is kept clean. This exercise is one of such works. The Assembly is committed in ensuring that Accra becomes a clean and liveable city," he added. 

Communities within the Okaikoi south sub metro include, Avenor, North Kaneshie, Industrial Area, Awudome Estate and Bubiashie among others.
