Hon Julius Debrah has inspected works on the street naming projects in the Adentan Municipality.

He inspected works at Duratech Signs, one of the companies contracted to build signage for the street naming projects.

He expressed satisfaction with the rate of work carried out by the Adentan Municipal Chief Executive, to meet the deadline of the project, even though he has been in office for a short period.

He stated the street naming projects come with huge advantages such as providing easy access to location especially in times of disaster and easy delivery of postings among many others, hence the instruction by President John Dramani Mahama to get it done by the 216 Assemblies.

He noted that most of the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies are working assiduously to ensure that the 18 months deadline given by the President and which comes to an end on 30th September 2014 is adhered to.

He observed that it would however be an indictment on any Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executive (MMDCE) who failed to meet the deadline, especially when they have been given enough time to do it.

He therefore advised the MMDCEs who are lagging behind to redouble their efforts to meet the deadline.

The Minister also advised the public to cooperate with the various Assemblies, especially when the street naming project is not an event but rather a process.

The Adentan Municipal Chief Executive indicated that 968 street names have been approved by the Assembly and gradually working on them.

He assured the Minister that they would be able to cover the whole Municipality.


Mr Mike Kwaku Ankrah, Production Manager at Duratech Signs also gave the assurance that the company would be able to meet the deadline given to it by the government to produce synergies for the project.


Hon. Julius Debrah has called on Chief Executives of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies to expedite action on the implementation of the Street Naming and Property Addressing Systems, in their various areas, when he visited Ga-West Municipal Assembly.

The Hon. Minister indicated his satisfaction with regard to work done so far by MMDCEs, across the country, since the directive given by His Excellency President Mahama for the implementation of the Street Naming and Property Addressing policy within 18 months; by September 30, 2014. He stated that most of the Chief Executives had performed creditably. He also commended the Chief Executive for Ga-West Municipal Assembly for a job well done.
