Ban on noise making takes off May 2

The Ga Traditional Council has urged churches, event organisers and the general public to respect the annual ban on drumming and noise making in the Ga State.

Addressing a press conference in Accra, the Gbese Mantse and Adonten of the Ga State, Nii Ayi Bonte II, surrounded by other traditional leaders said the month-long ban is scheduled to start from May 2, 2016 and end on June 2, 2016.

At the end of the period, the Odadaw custom will be performed to signify the lifting of the ban on drumming and noise making.

The council said the ban was a significant feature to herald the celebration of the Homowo Festival of the Ga-Dangme.

He said the one month period would be used to fast and pray for peace, progress and the welfare of the Ga-Dangme people in particular and the country as a whole.

Meanwhile, a task force comprising Wulomei from the Ga State had been set up to work in collaboration with the Ghana Police Service to monitor and enforce the ban on noise making in the Ga Traditional Area.
