Accra Metropolitan Assembly Bans Drumming § Noise Making For A Month

Accra Metropolitan Assembly has stated the ban on drumming and noise-making.

In the statement signed by the head of public affairs, Gilbert Nii Ankrah, he said guidelines had been issued in the interest of peace, harmony and national security as such periods are characterised by clashes between traditional authorities and religious leaders.

“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.

“The positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs are banned. Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during this period; 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 reduction of noise in the metropolis.”
