The Accra Regional Police Command has asked organizers and participants of the ‘dumsor vigil’ to avoid making noise during the procession.

The #DumsorMustStop vigil, championed by three Ghanaian celebrities – Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie and Lydia Forson – is to put pressure on the John Mahama-led administration to solve the erratic supply of electricity which has lingered on for close to three years.

Speaking to Citi News, the Accra Regional Police PRO, ASP Afia Tenge, said the call is to ensure that the ban on drumming and noise making imposed by the Ga Traditional Council ahead of their annual Homowo festival is observed.

“This is not the usual demonstrations that we all know where it is usually associated with noise.”

“This is very solemn and very noise-free procession so we will implore everyone and other people who will want to be part of this that as they come, they should know that it is not a noise making vigil,” she added.

Meanwhile, lawyer for the celebrities, Kofi Bentil, has served notice that they will not shield any participant who will flout the ban.

The vigil is slated for Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 4 pm. The participants will converge on the overhead bridge close to the main University of Ghana gate.
