On March 6, 1957, Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President, declared Ghana independent after centuries of British colonial rule, ushering the country into an era of self-rule.

It’s a day that has since been celebrated with much enthusiasm. It is usually characterised by a display of rich Ghanaian culture and military might.

All major streets of the country, especially Cape Coast, where it will be held this year, have been decked out with the red, gold and green national flag.

In 2020, it was held in the Northern Region, moved to the Ashanti Region last year, and this year the spotlight will fall on the Cape Coast town.

As part of the celebrations, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will deliver an address to climax the celebrations.
