Homowo: Ban on drumming and noise-making to take effect on 15th May – Ga Traditional Council

The Ga Traditional Council has stated that this year’s ban on drumming and noise-making in the Greater Accra Region will run from Monday, May 15, to Thursday, June 15, 2023.

The ban, which is a yearly traditional ceremony that precedes the celebration of the Homowo Festival, referred to as “Odadaa” by the chiefs and people of Ga Mashie, necessitates peace and tranquillity for more than a month after the ritual planting of the crops.

The prohibition is expected to affect Ga Mashie, Korle Gonno, Dansoman, Sakaman, Malam, Gbawe, Bortianor, Ngleshie-Amanfro, Kokrobite, Oshiyie, Obaakrowa, Kofi Kwei, Ahida, Papase, Pokuase, Amasaman, Saapeman, Achimota, and other communities.

In a statement, the Council’s Public Relations Officer, Nii Lartey Anum Tetteh, urged the public to follow the prohibition and warned that a task force would be formed to prosecute violators.

To guarantee full compliance with the ban, the Council has created various criteria, including limiting religious worship to the premises of churches/mosques and keeping noise levels to a minimum.

It advised religious leaders and traditional leaders to appreciate one another and refrain from making disparaging or offensive remarks.

It further urged everyone in the Ga Traditional Area to cooperate and follow the guidelines throughout the time frame specified.
