The Greater Accra Regional Co-ordinating Council (GARCC) has prohibited the use of party paraphernalia during festivals in the Greater Accra region.
The directive will affect the hoisting of flags and the wearing of party attire.
According to the Regional Minister, Henry Quartey, this is aimed at maintaining the prevailing peace and unity among the chiefs and people during festivals.
The decision was reached at the GARCC general meeting last Monday.
In a statement issued and signed by Greater Accra Regional Minister Henry Quartey, all Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives, as well as their Presiding Members, were directed to educate the public about the ban.
He has also asked them to pass a bye-law to encourage the resolutions’ implementation.
“We urge all citizens in the Greater Accra Region to support this campaign in our collective efforts to make Greater Accra work,” the release said.
