Just few weeks after the decongestion of some major roads in the Central Business District of Accra, traders are beginning to return to the street in order to continue with their businesses as usual.
Led by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey, the "make Accra work again" initiative is intended to keep Accra clean, by getting rid of illegal structures along the streets and various forms of indiscipline in the city.
"What called for it is that, we want to ensure that Accra is clean. We want to ensure that Accra is like the Dubai and America you want to go to. So we will remove all unauthorized structures that have sprung up all over the city and making it difficult for even sanitation and waste management companies to go about their duties", Mr Henry Quartey told a reporter earlier in May.
However, it appears this laudable initiative is beginning to see a major bottleneck as traders who were evicted from the Kantamato to Rawlings Park stretch of the road are returning to continue with their illegal activities.
Discussing the issue on the Good Morning Ghana show on Tuesday, Dr Randy Abbey believes that there is the need to find lasting solutions to factors that have affected the sustainability of such initiatives over the years.
In the past, similar fights could not be sustained due to political expediency.
