The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, has deployed about 898 personnel to ensure the national capital, Accra becomes clean at all times.
At a ceremony to outdoor the taskforce, the minister cautioned the personnel to execute their duties diligently.
“Discharge your duties professionally as you have been trained by the military. You are not to brutalise the people. You are supposed to engage them,” he added.
According to him, reports of abuse and extortion during the discharge of their duties will not be taken lightly.
“Anybody who even makes an attempt to collect somebody’s tomatoes, you are gone… If you make an attempt to extort from somebody, even one cedi, you are gone,” he said on Monday.
The team, which is is expected to clamp down on the indiscriminate disposal of waste across the city, has since paraded through major streets in the capital in a procession.
