All noise-making activities are prohibited, including the use of loudspeakers, tambourines, drums, burial rituals, and roadside evangelism.

Nii Lartey Anum Tetteh, the Council’s public relations officer, urged people to abide by the prohibition and warned them that a task force had been formed to pursue offenders.

In order to ensure complete compliance with the ban, the Council has set a number of rules, including limiting religious worship to the locations of churches and mosques and requiring low noise levels.

The Council also advised religious institutions and traditional leaders to treat one another with respect and to prevent their adherents from using hurtful or aggressive language.

In order to comply with the ban on loudspeaker use outside of places of worship, mosques, and bars, roadside preachers are required to cease their activity.

The reduction of noise in the city can only be enforced by a recognizable task force made up of AMA staff, the Police Service, and members from the Traditional Councils wearing tags.

The line separating Accra from the Eastern Region to the north, Odukpon Kpehe (Kasoa) to the west, and Osu to the east are the limits that are affected by the prohibition. Residents should also be aware that the restriction applies to all villages and towns governed by the Osu, Ngleshie Alata, and Ga Traditional Councils.
