The newly endorsed Municipal Chief Executive for Ashaiman, Albert Boakye Okyere has promised to get rid of filth from Ashaiman and make the area a modern city.

Speaking on Onua Fm morning show ‘Yen Nsem Pa’ the Municipal Chief Executive assured by the end of his tenure, Ashaiman would be counted among the cleanest cities in Africa.

Recently, pupils of the Ashaiman Presby A and B Basic Schools, embarked on demonstration to appeal to the Ashaiman Municipal Assembly to close down a major refuse dump which is very close to the school.

According to them, they have no choice than to go home earlier than the normal closing time due to the smoke and strong disgusting odor that emanates from the dumping site. Apart from that, they say they have to put up with house flies in their classrooms as a result of the proximity to the dumping site.

The surrounding areas of the Ashaiman-Tema overhead bridge which is the entrance to the Municipal Assembly, is wallowed in great filth.

Residents around the overhead area have turned the surrounding areas of the bridge into a dumping site.

While admitting the reality of the appalling situation, the newly endorsed MCE Albert Boakye Okyere said he is ready to tackle the situation head on once and for all, to give Ashaiman a brand new image.

He revealed that in order to end the challenge of getting permanent site for a refuse dump for tones of garbage that is produced daily in the area, arrangements are currently underway to establish a recycling plant there and also create jobs for the youth.

“In fact, I am aware of the sanitation challenges of Ashaiman, it is a big problem and a bad name for the town, which is home to many workers. We have to deal with it at once that is why I am reopening negotiation that I started during my tenure under ex-President Kufuor, with some Italian companies to come and set up a recycling plan that will end our problem of getting permanent site.”

He called for cooperation from the residents of the area as well assembly members to help him fight and win the war against deteriorating sanitation situation of the area.

He was grateful to the assembly members for giving him overwhelming endorsement.
