Markets in the Ashanti region to close down over disinfection exercise
This is to officially inform the general public and the good people of the Ashanti Region that under the nationwide Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development Disinfection Programme (COVID-19), a mass spraying exercise of markets will be conducted in all the 43 Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies in the Ashanti Region on Friday, 27th March, 2020.
The exercise has been put together as part of government’s effort to manage the spread of the deadly Coronavirus in the region.
A team of sprayers will be conducting the exercise in the Region and during the period, the market will be locked-down to prevent all obstruction during the exercise.
I wish to take this opportunity to passionately appeal to all traders in the market to co-operate and comply with the ban on activities in the markets in the region on Friday, 27th March, 2020.
I also wish to assure the general public that the chemicals used for the spraying exercise are not harmful and there is therefore no cause for fear of negative effects.
For emphasis, the general public must note that markets will not operate on Friday, 27th March, 2020, in the Ashanti Region.
I wish to count on all sundry to cooperate to ensure a successful exercise to achieve the desired impact.
ASHANTI REGIONAL MINISTER
