The Tema Metropolitan Assembly would institute a media awards scheme to reward and celebrate the selfless services rendered by media practitioners in Tema.

Mr. Felix Mensah Nii Annan-La, Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive observed that the media in Tema play a crucial role in the Tema Restoration Agenda and therefore the need to institute the awards to recognize their contributions.

He made this known when he interacted with members of the Tema Metropolitan press corps at his residence, Community Six, Tema, as part of his gesture to thank them for a year-long coverage of the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA).

Mr. Annan-La challenged the press men to seek answers to the perennial light fishing phenomenon that had bedeviled the fishing industry in spite of efforts by successive governments to deal with the menace.

Casting his mind back to the activities held in 2017, he said the TMA had laid a solid foundation and that in 2018 most of the promises made would be realised.

The Mayor of Tema also announced the complete ban of refuse carting tricycles that Accra-Tema motorway which littered the first class road.

He underscored his commitment to the Tema Restoration Agenda with which he hoped to make the city clean, restore all the street lights and rid it of the numerous unauthorized ‘containers’ that had robbed the city of its beauty.
