Political party signs will no longer be permitted during celebrations in the Greater Accra area, according to city officials.
This information was released by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, who claims that the decision was made on Monday during a meeting with the MMDCEs.
“Today we also collectively agreed to place a total ban on the use of party paraphernalia during a festive period in the Greater Accra region. And that will be from Ada all the way to Bortianor,” he said.
No traditional council or political party in the area should hoist any party signs, according to Mr. Quartey.
The participants in the meeting also decided to limit the use of tricycles in a few particular local assemblies.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly’s Central Business District, Krowor, Korley Klottey, Tema Metropolitan Assembly, La Dadekotopon, La-Nkwantanang, and Madina are among the places that were chosen.
However, he pointed out that the tricycles can be utilized in outlying places.
Mr. Quartey added that a statement to that effect will be released shortly.
In a similar incident, Mr. Quartey criticized various Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives in public for the degree of filth in the capital.
He voiced his profound discontent with how things are currently going in the Greater Accra area.
He singled out a few MMDCEs who, in his opinion, had left their jurisdictions in disarray.
“Have you been seeing people working with ‘aboboyaa’ [Tricycle] still on our motorway? Can we say it is hardworking? Trotro is still loading around Accra Mall, is that hardworking? Korley Klottey – rubbish around Graphic Road – hardworking? AMA, Kinbu, Tudu everywhere rubbish – hardworking?” he quizzed.
