“As we go back to our churches and mosques on the 5th June, we want to remind those of us in Accra that there is a ban on drumming and noise-making and we want to continue to appeal to the religious bodies to comply just as they have been doing over the years… There hasn’t been any problem or confusion and we just want to remind all of us to continue to stay together and comply accordingly, ” he said.
Mayor Sowah said this in an interview with journalists shortly after the commissioning of a bus shelter by the Rotary Club of Accra Sunrise on John Evans Atta Mills High Street directly opposite the Supreme Court of Ghana in Accra on Tuesday.
