The Ga, Osu and Ngleshie Traditional Councils have asked Metropolitan Chief Executive, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, to expedite work on the dredging of the Korle Lagoon.

They have also asked the MCE to continue to explore ways of maintaining a filth-free Accra.

All three councils toured the Korle Lagoon dredging project site and the Odawna area to acquaint themselves with progress of work, after the June 3 flood and fire disaster which claimed over 150 lives.

Nii Dodoo Nsaki II, President of the Ga Traditional Council and spokesperson of the group, said they were worried at the increasing level of indiscipline in the city.

“We deem it unfortunate that in spite of all these calamities certain group of people resident in Accra continue to flout simple basic hygiene rules of the Assembly,” Nii Amarkai III, Ngleshie Dzaase said.
