The exercise was mainly concentrated on dredging of major drains to prevent flooding during the rainy season.
Hon.

Considering that the Municipality is confronted with unsanitary conditions, Hon. MZ has already set the pace to addressing this challenge, which is marked by the receipt of two (2) trucks from Zoomlion to augment collection of refuse, and the special cleanup exercise held, among other initiatives.
The Coordinating Director, Mrs. Eugenia Akporhor-Agbenyegah also set an exemplary pace for staff to emulate, by collecting waste from dredged drains with a tricycle.
Ms. Mariama Briama, Municipal Environmental Health Officer for ANMA together with her time appropriately took charge of the exercise and directed staff and community members to prime areas including Club 1000, Abavana Street, Newtown police station etc.
In all the Assembly had a successful cleanup exercise which will go a long way to improve health conditions and prevent disasters in the long run.
