BAN ON DRUMMING AND NOISE-MAKING STARTS MONDAY, MAY 6

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced the commencement of the annual ban on drumming and noise-making in its jurisdiction, effective from Monday, 6th May to Thursday, 6th June 2024, with specific guidelines aimed at maintaining peace, harmony, and national security within the metropolis.

This is contained in a press release issued by the AMA.

The Assembly has therefore set the following guidelines in the interest of peace, harmony and national security:

1. During the period of the ban, churches are expected to carry out their activities within their premises and refrain from the use of musical instruments.

2. The positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs are banned. Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during this period.

3. Religious bodies and the Traditional Authorities must show respect for one another
and restrain their followers from making derogatory and inflammatory remarks about
the beliefs and practices of one another.

4. Other guidelines by the Ga Traditional Council (GTC) include a ban on funeral rites and their related activities.
5. Apart from an identifiable task force that consists of AMA personnel, the Ghana Police Service and Representatives from the Traditional Councils with tags, no other person or group of persons should be seen or found enforcing the abatement of noise in the metropolis.

The AMA entreated all persons, towns and villages within the Ga Traditional Area to cooperate and comply with the directive accordingly during this period.

“For further clarification relating to the ban on drumming and noise-making, please call the following hotlines: a. 0243211345 (GILBERT NII ANKRAH, AMA) b. 0244699095 (NII KLAN) c. 0549855811 (ASAFOATSE MANKATTAH) d.0243338908 (NII ABOSE ASROKOJA) All are enjoined to abide by these guidelines for an incident-free Nmaa Dumↄ period.
