In anticipation of the Te za (Yam Festival) 2022, the Asogli State Council has imposed a month long ban on funerals within its jurisdiction.
In a letter issued by Secretary to the Council, Stephen Tetteh on Monday, July 18, 2022, it urged the public and well meaning Ghanaians to take cognizance of the ban and act accordingly.
The ban is a customary activity that precedes the festival and this year’s own takes effect from Sunday, August 7, 2022 and expected to end on Sunday, August 14, 2022.
This year’s festival promises to be one of a kind and mega, which has the people of Asogli State wistful, after the festival was halted for the past few years, primarily because of Covid-19 restrictions.
The Paramount Chief, Togbe Afede XIV and his chiefs appeal to all and sundry to co-operate with the Council by strictly observing the ban on funerals to ensure a peaceful and successful celebration.
