Ga Mantse commends GARCC, AMA for efforts in keeping Accra clean


The Ga Mantse, His Royal Majesty (HRM)  Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, has expressed his appreciation for the collaborative efforts between the Greater Accra Regional Minister, the Mayor of Accra, and Traditional Authorities in maintaining cleanliness across the city.

The King of the Ga State made the commendation during a meeting at the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council (GARCC) as the Sanitation Steering Committee finalised preparations for a massive clean-up exercise ahead of the Homowo festivities.

"We appreciate your dedication to keeping Accra clean. Let's work diligently and ensure we achieve our goals. This is a call to all of us to work together,” he said.

The Ga Mantse highlighted the ambitious goal of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa, stressing that achieving this vision requires concerted action from residents, not just words, and called for a united approach to the clean-up efforts, encouraging all to be diligent and resilient.

 He assured that his office was working assiduously with all chiefs at the Ga Traditional Council to materialise the vision of a clean city.

The Ga Mantse also acknowledged the support from other traditional leaders and announced that a task force would strictly enforce sanitation bylaws. 

He used the platform to personally thank the committee members for their sacrifices and efforts, emphasising their significant role in the city's sanitation efforts.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister lauded the Ga Mantse for his commitment to the initiative and outlined plans to brief other key officials, including the Ministers for Sanitation, Local Government, and Interior. 

He added that a meeting with the president was also on the agenda to finalise the launch dates for the clean-up campaign.

"This exercise is incredibly dear to the Ga Mantse’s heart, as well as to the President," the Minister added...We've undertaken such efforts before, but sustaining them has been challenging. This time, we want the Traditional Council to lead and drive this initiative, ensuring its success."

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon. Daniel Nii Kwartei Titus Glover reiterated that the clean-up exercise, aimed at enhancing the cleanliness and hygiene of the city, would commence on July 2, 2024, with the full backing of both traditional and governmental authorities.
