The Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the Ashanti regional capital of Kumasi will this year host the Independence Day anniversary come March 6.

This was disclosed by Lord Commey, Committee of the Planning Chairman, Wednesday.

Speaking at the launch he added that the celebration which has been themed “Consolidating Our Gains” will have the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Keith Rowley as the special guest of honour.

Second batch Independence Day preparation

This will be the second time the Independence Day parade will be moved from the country’s capital, Accra to another region.

In 2019, President Nana Akufo-Addo for the first time in our nation’s History moved Ghana’s 62nd Independence Day celebration anniversary to the Northern regional capital, Tamale.

He was of the view that it will reinforce and support the process of reconciliation and the restoration of peace in Dagbon.

At the time, the government through a Commission of Chiefs led by the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, enskinned a new Ya-Na for the people of Dagbon to end decades-old of feuding between the Abudu and Andani gates following the murder of Ya-Na Yakubu Andani in 2002.
