The Ga Traditional Council has altered its edict on business closures ahead of the late queen, Naa Dedei Omaedru III’s, last funeral rites.
The Council had already instructed that all offices and stores in the Greater Accra Region’s Central Business District be closed for three days from October 26th to October 29th.
But a new statement issued by the Counil has altered the earlier directive.
It has therefore recommended that offices and companies close solely on Saturday, October 28, rather than the previously scheduled three-day decision.
“This is an amendment to our previous notice of 4th September 2023. The Ga Traditional Council has determined that shops and markets within Accra should be closed on Saturday, the 28th of October 2023 only and not from the 26th of October to the 29th of October 2023 to the 31st of October 2023 as previously announced,” the council said in the new statement.
“In addition, it is required that all markets, shops and offices in Accra should be draped in red and black, our mourning colours from the 15th October to the 31st October 2023. We respectfully urge everyone to comply fully with this announcement,” the statement further urged the public’s full cooperation.
