The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey has revealed plans to ban tricycles in Accra as part of efforts in making Accra work again.

According to adomonline, Henry Quartey engaged some government officials within Accra to finalize discussions for a bye-law to enhance compliance with the Road Traffic Regulations.
