Hawkers told to leave streets and walkways

Accra, Mr Mohammed Adjei Sowah, the Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), has cautioned traders not to display their wares on the streets and walkways of the Central Business District.

He said selling on the streets posed a threat to lives and advised the traders not to display their wares beyond the red line demarcation by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA).

Mr Sowah gave the warning on Friday when he interacted with the traders along the streets of Makola Market in Accra and called on his men to continue vigorously with the educational campaign.

I believe that most of the challenges faced within the metropolis are based on the lack of effective educational campaign to sensitise the traders, he said, and promised to engage them at all times to ensure they did the right thing.

Mr Sowah said very soon the AMA would recruit people in uniforms to ensure the enforcement of the bye-laws.
