The Daily Graphic urges the public to keep the markets clean since unclean markets affects the quality of food sold for consumption. It describes the situation where foodstuff and vegetables are sold close to chocked gutters and refuse dumps in places such as Agbogloshie, Kaneshie and Kokomba markets, as appalling. The Graphic finds it puzzling how these markets remain unclean when they have managers who are to ensure daily toll collection from sellers for their maintenance. The paper calls on the authorities to avoid making toll collection their preoccupation at the expense of the health of the people.
