Ghana : Prez inaugurates committee to plan 60th Independence Day anniversary


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has inaugurated a 30-member planning committee for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of Ghana’s independence, with a charge on the members to organise a modest but elegant and appropriate celebration.

“I think all of us are in agreement that the financial and economic circumstances of our country are not where we would like it to be. We have to recognise the reality of it; we do not have the money that we need to have and, therefore, the celebration of this milestone should be modest. It should take into account our strait and financial circumstance, but it should also be elegant and appropriate,” he stated.
