Sydney added that, he asked because, as far he knows, the vigil is not going to be a noise making activity as they are just going to stay awake and observe in the darkness as "they have become used to now."
Singer, Barimah Sidney has questioned the essence of the Ga-Traditional Council’s order to the Ghana Police Service to stop the #DumsorMustStop vigil due to its annual ban on noise making, ahead of the celebration of the Ga festival, Homowo.
He questioned that, if they are banning the #DumsorMustStop vigil, will the use of generator be also banned, as it even makes much more noise and it has now become the 'light saviour' for many Ghanaians.
“Although the vigil falls within the ban on noise making, will the #DumsorMustStop vigil make noise than the use of generators, now that it has become a seeming ‘light-saviour’ to some Ghanaians? Or the use of generators will also be ban during the ‘Alagb3me’ period?” he asked.
He added that, he asked because as far he knows, the vigil is not going to be a noise making activity as they are just going to stay awake and observe in the darkness as "they have become used to now."
“I ask because the vigil is not to make noise, instead some of us including the advocacy leaders, Yvonne Nelson and Sarkodie have decided to stay awake to observe in the darkness as we have gradually become used to now.”
He further indicated, “for what I know, a vigil is no noise making activity, but rather an observation ceremony and the #DumsorMustStop vigil is not to gather the huge number of Ghanaians to play music for them because even on the night of May 16, I have a strong believe there will be no light as usual.”
According to Barimah Sidney, he is baffled at the fact that a vigil that is being held in the interest of the ‘ordinary’ Ghanaian person, who have no say than rather endure the power crisis, is rather being politicized and going through these difficulties of acquiring a venue for it.
