Accra: A delegation of traditional rulers, on behalf of the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam to inform him of the ban on noise-making within the Ga traditional areas of the Greater Accra region.

The Sempe Muslims Akwashongtse, Nii Adote Odaawulu I, who led the delegation, said the purpose of the visit was to remind the Muslim community about the ban in force.

He observed that the Muslim community in Accra has generally lived in peace with the Ga people and has respected their traditions and culture without any problems.

He therefore urged everyone on Ga lands to respect the customs of the Ga people for the sake of peace and tranquilly.

This, he said, will strengthen the relationship and foster unity and understanding between the Ga people and other tribes and religious groupings within its traditional area.

He appealed to the leadership of various mosques in the area to abide by the regulations that govern the ban and called on their members to also adhere to them and stay away from any form of derogatory comment about the custom.

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced a ban on drumming and noise-making activities across the various traditional areas in the Ga state, with effect from May 6, 2024, to Thursday, June 6, this year.

Nii Adotey Odaawulu I urged residents of Accra to conduct their activities within the confines of their premises, with churches, mosques, and pubs specifically singled out for compliance.

Furthermore, the AMA’s statement also stipulated that roadside evangelists must cease their activities during this period.

Additionally, the Ga Traditional Council has introduced guidelines, including a ban on funeral rites and other activities.

This comprehensive measure aims to maintain peace and tranquilly within Accra during this designated period.

By restricting noisy gatherings and outdoor events, authorities seek to minimise disruptions as preparations for the Homowo festival begin.
