Ga Traditional Council revises directive on closure of shops/Holiday in Accra ahead of Ga Manye’s funeral
The Ga Traditional Council has revised its directive on the closure of shops ahead of preparations for the final funeral rites of the late queen, Naa Dedei Omaedru III.
The Council previously directed that all offices and shops in the Central Business District in the Greater Accra Region be closed for three days from the 26th to the 29th of October.
The Council in a new statement directed that offices and businesses be closed only on Saturday, October 28, and not the previously announced three-day directive.
“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 corporation.
