Ghana 64th independence celebration
Amid the covid-19 pandemic, the celebration of Ghana’s 64th independence might be done virtually to curb the spread of the virus.
“doing the annual parade in rising covid-19 cases will not be safe as it will be a venue for the spread of the virus which has claimed the lives of more than 500 people in the country.” Peter Toobu, former Executive Secretary to a retired Inspector General of Police said.
However, because the 64th independence falls on a weekend, the President declared Monday, 8th March 2021, as a Public Holiday.
“In view of the fact that 6th March 2021 falls on a Saturday, His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, has by Executive Instrument (E.I), in accordance with section 2 of the Public Holidays and Commemorative Days Act, 2001 (Act 601) declared Monday, 8th March 2021, as a Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country.” statement read.
