The Municipal Security Council (MUSEC) in collaboration with the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly is leaving no stone unturned with regard to vital engagements with stakeholders to promote and ensure a peaceful environment for this year’s Homowo Celebration.
To this end, it called on flag group leaders to make peace and security a priority prior to the Gbemlilaa, a traditional rite that precedes activities to earmark the celebration.
In attendance were the Municipal Chief Executive Mrs. Evlyn Naa Adjeley Twum-Gyamerah and the Coordinating Director. Also present were the security heads, that is the Greater Accra Regional Dep.Police Commander, Regional Police CID, Kpeeshi Divisional Commander, Teshie Military Command, and the convenor for the annual Homowo stakeholders meeting, Mr. Clement Kommey.
The Regional Commander cautioned individuals and groups who are used to perpetuating violence to desist from it and rather give peace a chance.
On his part, the Divisional Commander, urged the leaders to encourage their members to observe the COVID protocols, most especially the wearing of nose masks during the Kpashimo.
The Military command also used the occasion to appeal to the groups to desist from wearing military uniforms in their moments of celebration, reminding them that it is a serious offense punishable by law.
The Municipal Chief Executive advised the groups to bring back the love, pomp and pageantry that characterize such celebrations and also adhere to security protocols for the celebration. She reiterated the arrangement for the Gbemlilaa and called on all stakeholders to support the Ashia-We to perform the needed rites in anticipation of a successful celebration.
The people were thrilled with Homowo songs by Azin Kotoku and Kane.
