The Industrial Area branch of Winners Chapel International has been summoned by the Ga Traditional Council for allegedly flouting the ban on noise-making.
Management of the church is required to appear before Niimei of the Ga Traditional Council on Thursday, June 22, at the Ga Mantse Palace Kaneshie in Accra.
While the specific reasons for the summons were not explicitly stated by the Council, sources indicate that it is related to the ban on noise-making.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs and Ga Traditional Council on Sunday, May 21, it was stated, “You are hereby summoned to appear before Niimei of the Ga Traditional Council on Thursday 22nd June 2023 at 10: 00 am prompt at the Ga Mantse Palace Kaneshie, Accra. Take note that, failure to appear before Niimei will lead to further action against you.”
The ban on all forms of noise-making and drumming in Accra, lasting for one month, came into effect on May 15, 2023.
This ban is part of the preparations for the Ga people's celebration of the Homowo festival.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) issued a statement reminding residents within its jurisdiction about the annual exercise and urged compliance with the directive by individuals in the catchment areas.
The ban covers all forms of noise-making activities, including the use of loudspeakers, drums, tambourines, funeral rites, and roadside evangelism.
The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, emphasized that the Regional Security Council would ensure strict adherence to the ban throughout the region.
