Ban on drumming and noise-making in Accra commences from May 6


May 6, 2024

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) in Ghana, has announced the commencement of this year’s ban on drumming and noise-making, slated to run from May 6th to June 6th, 2024.

The assembly in a press release outlined specific guidelines aimed at maintaining peace, harmony, and national security during the ban period, noting that religious houses are required to conduct their activities solely within their premises, refraining from the use of musical instruments, nor placement of loudspeakers outside their premises.

Additionally, it says roadside evangelism activities are to be suspended during this period, while the Ga Traditional Council (GTC) has imposed a ban on funeral rites and related activities, while the enforcement of the noise abatement measures will be carried out solely by an identifiable task force comprising the Assembly’s personnel, the Ghana Police Service, and representatives from the Traditional Councils.
