AMA admonishes public to assist in arresting woman dumping refuse in drains
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has admonished the public to volunteer information that will lead to the arrest of a woman who was captured in a video disposing rubbish into a drain during last Wednesday's rains.
According to the AMA, the woman’s conduct is against the by-laws of the Assembly. In a statement condemning the incident, the AMA lamented such actions of indiscipline derail the efforts of the Assembly.
The Assembly has called on Ghanaians to be responsible for their environment and refrain from such bad attitudes as they go a long way to frustrate the efforts to address the perennial flooding in the city.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo speaking to the Ghanaian community in Canada said unless Ghanaians change their attitude and habit toward the environment, floods will always hit the nation when it rains.
The President further indicated that he is not prepared to spend money on floods if Ghanaians do not refrain from activities that contribute to floods.
