But she said after the restrictions were lifted, the dirt started emerging.“When we don’t do these things, throw garbage into the drains the drains will be clearer, neater and our homes also will be clean because the Assembly will send the Abobyaa’s (tricycles) round to pick the waste that is what we want. We endorse the one house one bin policy.”
Regarding the grading efforts to make Accra the cleanest city she said, “I will give it 85 per cent because at the end of the day you saw the 100 per cent we did during the lock down.”
“So who makes Accra dirty? That is why every day we are sensitizing people. I insist we are 85 per cent.”
