Cape Coast to host 65th Independence Day Event. The Central Region has been announced as the host of this year’s Independence day anniversary celebration.

Justina Marigold Asan, Regional Minister for the Central Region, said they selected the region to host all major national activities towards the celebration of the anniversary.

She expressed appreciation to His Excellency Nana Addo for having such a monumental anniversary in the region. The Regional Minister assured the President that the celebrations would be successful and a remarkable one in the annuls of the region.

They held a brief ceremony at the forecourt of the seat of the Presidency to launch the anniversary. Gracing the ceremony were the President and his Vice, some government officials, dignitaries, and selected security persons.

Addressing the nation, Nana Addo said, “We were the first nation in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence from colonial power. The mood of the new state was one of unrestrained excitement and jubilation because of the prospects of what the future had for us.”

The government plans to rotate such national programs around the nation and this year, Central Region has been selected. The government selected the Ashanti Region in 2018 and the Northern Region in 2019 to host the celebrations.

Unfortunately, last year, the Independence Day Celebration was suspended because of the outbreak of the pandemic. This was to reinforce adherence to COVID-19 protocols.

Ghana celebrates Independence Day every 6th March. It marks the declaration of Ghana’s independence from British imperialism at the Old Polo Grounds. It is yet another time to reminisce the glorious moment Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah announced, “Ghana, your beloved country is free forever.”

The Independence Day Event to be hosted at Cape Coast is the 65th which will mark 65 years since Ghana gained Independence. On 6th March 2022, Ghana will be 65 Years of Age.
