All is set for Eastern Region to host Independence Day celebration

The theme for this year's Independence Day celebration is "Our Democracy Our Pride"

All is set for Koforidua, capital of the Eastern Region to host the country’s 67th Independence Day celebration.

The special guest of honour for this year’s Independence Day celebration will be President Alhassan Quattara of Côte d’Ivoire.

This year’s celebration will be under the theme: “Our Democracy Our Pride”.

Lord Oblitey Commey, the director of operations at the Office of the President and chairman of the national celebrations planning committee, urged the local organising committee to work hard to ensure a successful anniversary celebration.

“The local organising committee has an enormous task to meet because all the powerful eleven paramouncies in the region will be here,” he noted.

Commey expressed the hope that the 67th anniversary celebration will surpass all previous ones.

Jefferson Sackey, deputy communications director at the Jubilee House, said “When you look at the number 67, there is an overflow that represents the hills of the Eastern Region and that is significant,” he said

The Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong, stated that celebrating Independence Day in the region will not only help to grow the local economy but will also showcase the region’s rich cultural heritage.

For the past six years, Independence Day celebrations have been rotated from region to region, and this is President Akufo Addo‘s final celebration as president.
