Independence Day celebrations suspended over COVID-19

The 64th Independence Day celebration which was expected to take place on 6th March 2021, has been suspended by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

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

“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,” the GES memo said.

The suspension follows the increasing coronavirus cases in Ghana.
