AMA: Ban on noise-making begins 9 May

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly says its taskforce is collaborating with the police to ensure strict adherence to the ban on noise-making to avert any clashes

This year’s ban on drumming and noise-making in the Greater Accra Region will commence on 9 May and run until 9 June 2022, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has announced.

A statement issued and signed by the public relations officer of the AMA, Gilbert Nii Ankrah, appealed to the public to avoid flouting public order directives and guidelines governing the month-long period.

“During the period of the ban, churches are to carry out their normal activities within their premises and refrain from the use of musical instruments,” the statement said.

“The positioning of loudspeakers outside the premises of churches, mosques and pubs [is] banned. Roadside evangelists are to cease their activities during this period.”


The AMA says its taskforce is collaborating with the police to ensure strict adherence to the ban to avert any clash between the traditional authorities and potential offenders.

“Apart from an identifiable task force that consists of AMA personnel, the Ghana Police Service and representatives from the traditional councils with tags, no other person or group of persons should be seen or found enforcing the abatement of noise in the metropolis,” the statement adds.
