Ghana’s 59th Independence Celebration
Sunday 6th March 2016 marks the 59th Birthday of Ghana after gaining independence from Britain as the first Country in Sub Saharan Africa to achieve independence under the leadership of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. The adage that “ The youth are the future leaders” is evidently clear in the theme “Investing in the Youth for Ghana’s Transformation” for the independence anniversary.The first Gentleman of the land His excellency President John Dramani Mahama will review the parade at the Black Star Square in Accra.
As a nation we should be grateful that our leaders have identified the importance of this critical theme and need as a nation. As to whether we the youth of Ghana know and believe in this theme is very important because we will make the efforts of leadership meaningful or otherwise by our understanding of this theme and our reaction to efforts of government to prepare us for the future.
When the events unfold on 6th March, 2016, the president of the nation will deliver his very important speech at the event which will have Kenyan President, his excellency Mr Uhuru Kenyatta, as the all important Special Guest of Honour. This is not only historic but also shows the level of friendship and partnership between the two countries.
In the spirit of patriotism, love for country. I wish all Ghanaian a happy 59th Anniversary celebration.
Let us all as Ghanaians hold in high esteem the spirit of nationhood, hold on to the peace we are enjoying and believe in ourselves as citizens. I encourage us all to work hard in our fields of endeavour to move this nation forward. Our tomorrow as a nation is dependent on all citizens and their efforts. Don’t be a passive Ghanaian be an active citizen. Nobody can make Ghana become what we aspire it to be but we ourselves. Your efforts and mine all go to improve on our total success as a nation. Arise and lets challenge ourselves to a better, rewarding and successful nation.
God bless our home land Ghana; Make our nation great and strong.
