Ga Manye Funeral: No School In Greater Accra Will Close Down On 26th & 27th Oct. – GES

The Ghana Education Service has announced the amendment to an earlier letter from the Ga Traditional Council on the final funeral rites of the Ga Manye, Naa Dedei Omaedru III.

The  Ga Traditional Council had earlier ordered a three-day closure of all schools, shops, and offices within the Central Business District in Accra from October 26 to 29, 2023.

However, the closure has now been restricted to one day which is Saturday, October 28, 2023.

A memo signed by the Acting Director of Education for the Greater Accra Region, Stephen Abamfo, said “From the Funeral Planning Committee of the late Naa Dedei Omaedru III, the Ga Manye, the new date for the closure of schools, shops, and offices in and around Ga Mashie Traditional Area is Saturday 28th October, 2023.

In view, of that, no school in the Greater Accra Region will be closed down on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th October, 2023. Please note and bring this notice to the attention of all Heads and teachers in your Metro/Municipal/District Education Directorate. I am counting on your cooperation.”

Naa Omaedru III, also known as Naa Dedei Ablah in private life, died on December 26, 2022, at her Dansoman residence.

She was installed as the Ga Manye in 1963 when she was 29 and served for 59 years

Throughout her reign, she dedicated herself to public and voluntary service, advocating peace, education, and opportunities for young people, particularly girls.
