The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced a ban on drumming and noise-making activities within the Accra metropolis, effective from Monday, May 6 to Thursday, June 6, 2024.

The directive applies to all residents, with the AMA urging strict compliance.

During the ban period, churches are instructed to conduct their activities exclusively within their premises, refraining from the use of musical instruments.

Additionally, the positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of religious institutions and pubs is prohibited.

Roadside evangelists are also required to halt their activities during this period, as per the AMA’s statement released on Friday, May 3, 2024.

The statement emphasizes the importance of mutual respect among religious bodies and Traditional Authorities, urging followers to refrain from making derogatory or inflammatory remarks about each other’s beliefs and practices.

Furthermore, guidelines outlined by the Ga Traditional Council (GTC) include a ban on funeral rites and related activities during the specified period.

The enforcement of the noise abatement measures will be carried out by a designated task force comprising AMA personnel, the Ghana Police Service, and representatives from the Traditional Councils, identifiable by tags.

The statement warns against any unauthorized enforcement activities by individuals or groups outside of this designated task force.
