#Wearyourmask: Your 'irresponsibility' cannot affect other lives - Accra Mayor warns

The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah says he will go after ‘reckless’ citizens who have ignored to wear their nose mask in public to help curb the spread of Coronavirus.

He vowed to arrest individuals who purposely refuse to wear their mask or wear it incorrectly in public.

Mohammed Adjei Sowah is championing the ‘WearYourMask’ campaigning with the police and the military in the city of Accra.
