Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) within the Greater Accra region have banned the posting of banners and posters on ceremonial streets and key locations in the region with immediate effect.
This is considered as a step in the right direction in order to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.
The MMDAs made this public information at a press conference organized on Thursday, February 28, 2019.
The MMDAs also gave a 14-day ultimatum to churches, advertisers, filmmakers, educational institutions and the general public to remove all such publicity materials from the city.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Ga East Municipal Assembly, Janet Tulasi Mensah, who addressed the press, said the decision was in line with President Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa.
According to her, the hoisting of the posters and banners are illegal and deface the city.
Janet Tulasi Mensah said the assemblies would announce designated areas that will accommodate such advertisements and persons interested in hoisting their adverts will have to go through the assemblies.
She also stressed the resolve of the various assemblies to champion the agenda of beautification and cleanliness in the city of Accra.
