Ghana at 67 independence day

Ghana had it’s first independence day celebration on 6th March 1957 after being ruled for 83years by the British.

Following a declaration made by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana, that they are free from Colonial rule.

And that gave Ghana the privilege to be the First Sub Saharan Country to be free from it’s colonial masters.

Since then the country has centered it’s Independence day celebration on the 6th march of every year.

Also this day is observed by both Ghanaians in Ghana and Ghanaians staying abroad.

Whereas in 2017 President Nana Akufo Addo decided to rotate the National independence day celebration, to showcase the different regions and stimulate the local economy.

Therefore the Eastern Region becomes the 3rd Region to host following the Central Region in 2022 and the Volta region in 2023.

The event was honored by the presence of President Alassane Ouattara of Côte d’Ivoire as the Special Guest of Honor.

About 120 ambassadors and high commissioners from different countries, along with Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament and the 275 Members of Parliament attended the occasion which featured a parade involving security services, students, pupils, and various groups and institutions.

This year’s event was centered around the theme: “Our Democracy, Our Pride”.
