Mayor of Accra spends money on huge billboards

Huge billboards with the portrait of the Greater Accra regional minister, Ishmael Ashitey and the mayor of Accra accompanying inscription “Welcome to Accra, the Proposed Cleanest City in Africa” have been erected in various parts of the metropolis.

Even though it is not yet known whether the billboards were sponsored by the two officials or other entities, many individuals were of the view that it was wrong to use scarce resources to mount billboards which were of no use especially when the project to clean the city has not been achieved.
