May 14-June 14 Accra’s Ban on Noise Making Takes effect

The Ga Traditional Council (GTC) has placed a ban on drumming and noise-making in the traditional area starting from May 14 to June 14, 2018.

The one-month long ban is a custom that precedes the celebration of the Homowo Festival of the chiefs and people of Ga Mashie.

Nii Dodoo Nsaki II, the Acting President of the GTC announced this when he addressed a news conference at the Ga Mantse Palace in Accra on Monday.

He called on the chiefs and the elders of Accra and its environs to ensure that the ban was enforced in their respective areas in collaboration with the local district Assemblies.

Nii Dodoo Nsaki said a monitoring team had been put in place with special identity cards to ensure the compliance of the ban with the support of the Police, Asafoatsemei and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly special taskforce.

“They will visit flashy points and arrest recalcitrant churches, noise makers and those who will impersonate or imposters,” he said.

He said the GTC had reached understanding with the orthodox churches and they had expressed their cooperation during the ban.

Ghana News Agency

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
