Ghana makes history as it marks it 62nd Independence Day at a venue outside Accra for the first time

Ghana is celebrating her 62nd Independence Day today (March 6, 2019).

In previous years, the Independence Day celebration was held in the country’s capital, Accra. But today’s event will be held at the capital of the Northern Region, Tamale.

Meanwhile, the 6th March celebration in all districts within the Northern Region has been cancelled for this year.

All the districts are rather expected to be Tamale for the national parade on March 6.

The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, said this is to enable all Districts and Municipal Chief Executives, Directors of Education, staff, and school children to participate in the national parade.

Meanwhile, renovation work has been on-going at the 20,000 seater capacity Aliu Mahama sports stadium where the event will be hosted.

The Special Guest of Honour, President of Niger Mahamadou Issoufou, is expected to be in the country on Wednesday, March, 6.

International dignitaries, traditional leaders, and other personalities are expected to be present at the occasion.
