Cleaning Accra Gov't to meet stakeholders on Monday to "replan" millennium city

A sober looking Ayariga acknowledged that government and other public officers “have failed to implement plans, we have failed to update existing plans, we have failed to manage activities properly in our cities and so when you fail in this regard, these are some of the consequences that will be visited on us.”

Mahama Ayariga disclosed that government will meet all relevant stakeholders on Monday to look at the strategic plans that were developed for the Greater Accra Metropolitan area as far back as 1991.

He said some of the plans which were developed more than a decade ago to outline all the drainage issues area have not been implemented. I have actually requested a meeting on Monday afternoon with all the other sector Ministries and agencies and our development partners because if you look at the plan, almost everybody has a role to play to make the plan work. It’s not just the city authorities.

The Minister was optimistic that the meeting will help authorities have first hand information on how to address the perennial flooding in the city. The stakeholders include officials from the Town and Country Planning, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the planning officers at the ACCAR Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and the Town and Country Planning Department under the Ministry of Environment.

Ayariga disclosed that after an initial meeting with these officers, they said the nation’s capital suffers during every rainy season due to poor planning.

A sober looking Ayariga acknowledged that government and other public officers “have failed to implement plans, we have failed to update existing plans, we have failed to manage activities properly in our cities and so when you fail in this regard, these are some of the consequences that will be visited on us.”
