The Ga Mantse, King Tackie Tawiah, has condemned a directive by the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council (REGSEC), restricting the celebration of this year’s Homowo festival.

REGSEC has asked the police to ensure that the celebration is confined to family homes, and not on the streets as has been the practice.

The Security Council, chaired by the regional minister also decided that none of the feuding factions should be allowed to use the stool rooms and palaces.

But the Ga Traditional Council is livid. Spokesperson for the Ga Mantse Nii Boye Abbey tells Joy News the traditional council might be compelled to defy it.

“The Ga Mantse sprinkles kpokpoi in the stool house, the palace is also here; we will do the same this year,” he said.
