Operation Clean Your Frontage kicks off today – Minister assures corrupt officials will be sacked

In a bid to make the Operation Clean Your Frontage initiative a successful one, the Greater Accra Regional Minister has assured that corrupt practices among the task force deployed to ensure its implementation will not be tolerated.

 Mr Quartey indicated that the task force will be under strict scrutiny. More often than not members of the various assembly taskforces have often been accused of extortion.

“Unlike the previous task force, with this, they are going to be strictly monitored, and so if anybody takes a bribe from somebody, immediately we sack the person,” the Minister said.

The Operation Clean Your Frontage programme, which is scheduled to commence today, February 1, 2022, will make use of 3,000 personnel.

“They are going to pass out, and come and ensure the sustainability [of the programme],” Mr Quartey said.

He also expects the Operation Clean Your Frontage programme to last for some years.

“Indeed, it is not just for one month or two months. It is our hope and prayer that this will run all the way to the next elections. These people will have something to do till the end of 2024/2025.”

Mr Quartey motive concerning the project is to leave a foundation future ministers can build on.

“We want to have a short, medium and long term programme so that one day if somebody succeeds me as regional minister, the person must be able to continue from where I left off.”

Operation Clean Your Frontage is a response to concerns that filth continues to dominate most parts of Accra.

The government is set to ensure the enforcement of the sanitation bye-laws from February with the roll-out of this project.

To serve as a deterrent to others, persons or groups with dirty surroundings will be summoned and sanctioned by environmental health officers.
