The Ga traditional council has set up a taskforce to monitor this year’s ban on drumming and noise making, scheduled to commence from May 13, 2019.
The one month ban which is expected to end on June 13, 2019, forms part of the customs which precedes the annual Homowo festival of the chiefs and people of Ga Traditional Area.
Addressing the media, the Acting President of the council, Nii Dodoo Nsaki II, said religious bodies and residents within the Ga State who would not abide by the directive would face sanctions.
“Any institution that will flout the rules and regulations governing this year’s festival would be dealt with. The General Christian Community and traditional authorities must show respect for one another and restrain their followers from making derogatory statements about the beliefs and practices of another's religion,’ he said.
Nii Dodoo Nsaki II added that during the period of the ban, there should not be any form of noise-making at social gatherings.
He entreated the general public to adhere to all traditional rules when the ban takes effect, in the interest of peace, harmony and national security.
