Independence Day celebrations suspended over COVID-19



The Independence Day celebration of Ghana which takes place on 6th March every year will not come off this year.

The 64th Independence Day has been suspended by His Excellency, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.


The Celebration which was supposed to take place on 6th March, 2021 has been due to the increase in the number of active Covid cases in the Country.


This was contained in a memo issued on Monday, February 15, 2021, to all Municipal and District Education Directors and Heads of all schools by the Ghana Education Service (GES) .

It stated that “Management of the Ghana Education Service wishes to inform all Regions that the 64th Independence Anniversary Parade on the 6th March 2021 has been suspended forthwith across the country,”.
