ONMA Steps Up “Operation Clean Your Frontage” Sensitization Campaign

The Environmental Health And Sanitation Department of the Okaikwei North Municipal Assembly (ONMA) has stepped up public education on “Operation Clean Your Frontage” Campaign.

This is a strong push by the Assembly towards realising this ambitious goal launched by President Nana Akufo-Addo in October last year.

The ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ initiative aims to enforce sanitation regulation within the Greater Accra region as part of the ‘Make Greater Accra Work’ programme being championed by the Regional Coordinating Council.

However, briefing journalists on day two of the public sensation by ONMA, Boniface Ashalley, the Municipal Environmental Health Officer (MEHO) said some forty-two stores and houses were engaged on the need to keep their surroundings clean on the first day of the sensitization.

He said for now, the Assembly through its Health Department is only engaged in awareness creation and sensitization stressing that effective February 1, 2022 offenders of the sanitation law will be punished.

Mr. Ashalley added that defaulters of the sanitation bye-law could serve a 6 to 18 months jailed term depending on the gravity of the offense.
