MCE cautions public against indiscriminate littering

Mr Emmanuel Kweku Tetteh, Agona West Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) has cautioned the public against littering and indiscrimate dumping since such habits could lead to an outbreak of epidemics.

Mr Tetteh said this when he led the staff of the Agona West Municipal Assembly, the Security Agencies and the public in a-five-hour clean up exercise within the Agona Swedru Municipality.

The exercise formed part of activities marking Ghana’s 55th Independence Anniversary Celebration, which falls on Tuesday March 6, 2012.

The MCE urged the people to be aware of their civic responsibilities, which include keeping their surroundings clean to prevent the outbreak of cholera and other communicable diseases.

Mr Tetteh said the assembly would arrest and prosecute people who flout the bye-laws, including littering and dumping of rubbish indiscriminately.

He appealed to the people in Agona West and East to stop dumping refuse at unauthorised places.
