The two mini-buses donated by Zoomlion Ghana Limited to the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council

Waste management giant, Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL), has donated two brand new Toyota Hiace buses to the Greater Accra Regional Co-ordinating Council in support of the ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ initiative being spearheaded by the regional minister, Mr Henry Quartey.

The vehicles are to facilitate the movement of personnel of the co-ordinating council in keeping the national capital clean, which is a component of the project.

It is also in line with the overall vision of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s vision of making Ghana the cleanest country in Africa.

The presentation was done at the regional co-ordinating council in Accra on Wednesday.

Presenting the two 13-seater buses embossed with logos of ‘Let’s Make Accra Work,’ the Managing Director (MD) of ZGL, Mrs Gloria Anti, said the donation was a demonstration of Zoomlion’s commitment to a clean, green and healthy environment.

“The ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ initiative is laudable, and we believe with supports like this, Accra will eventually become the cleanest city in Africa,” she said.

Receiving the buses, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey, thanked Zoomlion for the kind gesture.

He gave assurance that the buses would be used to pursue the agenda of making things work in the region.

Describing the donation as very “historic”, Mr Quartey said, “I say so because as part of my vision for the region, I engaged the Executive Chairman of Jospong Group of Companies, Dr Siaw Agyepong, on how we can tackle sanitation in the region. I also appealed to him for buses to ease our movement on the field.”

Following that appeal, Mr Quartey said even though Dr Siaw Agyepong assured of delivering within a week, “he fulfilled that promise much earlier (within a space of two days)”.

The regional minister therefore seized the opportunity to encourage other companies to follow the example of Zoomlion by donating towards the ‘Let’s Make Accra Work’ initiative.

He equally commended Converge, an advertising company, which helped designed the logo of the project.

“We will also require the media to partner us in this exercise by helping to educate and sensitise the public on making Accra clean,” he urged.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister Henry Quartey launched the ‘Let’s make Accra work’, few days ago.

It is a non-partisan agenda focused on ensuring the socio-economic development of the region.

According to Mr Quartey, his appointment as the regional minister was supported with prayer and advice from his predecessors and other opinion leaders and stakeholders to work in collaboration to make Accra work.

He said he had met with executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs), Departmental Heads under the Regional Coordinating Council and also with the Parliamentary caucus of the Greater Accra Region for all of them to support the project to succeed.
