The Greater Accra Regional Peace Council on Friday urged religious bodies and the Ga Traditional Leaders to adhere to the ban on noise making and drumming, which takes effect from Monday May 13th to June 13.

The Council urged all stakeholders to respect and observe the ban accordingly.
It also urged the traditional councils and the youth who enforced the ban not to take the laws in their hands, rather, they should employ peaceful means to observe the enforcement of the ban.

A statement signed by the Right Reverend Samuel K. Osabutey, Chairman of the Council expressed concern that in the past, the enforcement of the ban by the Ga Traditional Councils had led to the seizure and destruction of musical instruments of some churches.

The statement said the violence that had characterized the enforcement of the ban was a source of concern to all well-meaning Ghanaians, including the Greater Accra Regional Peace Council.

It said the Nii Mei and Naa Mei have therefore opted for the Police and other national security officers to be in charge of enforcement instead of the use of force by traditional youth and at times criminals, who take advantage of the situation to inflame passions and threaten the peace in the Region.

The statement said a stakeholders’ meeting was held at the instance of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs on May 6 and in attendance was the Greater Accra Regional Peace Council, security agencies in the region and metropolitan and Municipal District Chief Executives and other stakeholders.
