Who is Who?: La and Ga Traditional Councils battle over DumsorMustStop vigil

Yvonne Sarkodie Lydia Forson

The La Traditional Council has given organizers of the famous #DumsorMustStop vigil the green light to demonstrate.

According to the Council, they are not observing any ban on drumming and noise making ahead of the Homowo festival until July thus people in their jurisdiction can go about their normal duties.

Chief Priest of the La Traditional Council, Nuumo Yemo Obroni made this known on Asema FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday.

This comes after the Ga Traditional Council petitioned the Police to restrain celebrities frustrated about the worsening power crisis from demonstrating against government.

The vigil dubbed: #dumsormuststop championed by rapper Sakordie and actress Yvonne Nelson is to put pressure on government to end the dumsor crisis.

The Ga Traditional Council maintained that the vigil will flout the law on drumming and dancing.

But Nuumo Yemo Obroni on Ekosii Sen said the venue for the vigil is not under the Ga Traditional Council, hence it has no right to ban the vigil.

He stated the people of La support all forms of demonstration because it is a way of telling the government to sit up.

The La Chief Priest called on celebrities and well-meaning Ghanaians to treat the fiat from the Ga Traditional Council with the contempt it deserves.

“Demonstration is a form of expressing opinion so the Ga Traditional Council should not throw dust into the eyes of Ghanaians,” he stressed

Nuumo Yemo Obroni offered to pour libation before the dumsor vigil starts if invited.
