With approximately a month to go for the first-ever National Day celebrations to be held at Koforidua in the Eastern Region, stakeholders for this all-important national exercise have held a pre-launch workshop to begin preparations for the August occasion.
Last month, the Eastern Regional Capital, Koforidua, was announced as the chosen city to host the 67th Independence Day National Celebration, scheduled for 6th March, 2024.
The purpose of the pre-launch meeting and workshop at the Eastern Regional Coordinating Council in Koforidua was to charge the local organizing committee to ensure a successful celebration.
The event was attended by the relevant government agencies and representatives of security services in the region, among other stakeholders.
At the meeting, various sub-planning committees were formed with specific roles to ensure a smooth and successful celebration.
Emphasizing the importance of the event, Dr. Lord Commey, Director of Operations at the Office of the President, urged the region to capitalize on the opportunity to showcase itself to the country and the world.
He also encouraged private sector involvement in sponsorship and partnership opportunities, highlighting the positive impact it can have on the local economy. Dr. Lord Commey added that the ceremony should not be politicized and asked for support from various political parties to help in the organization of Ghana’s 67th anniversary.
The Eastern Regional Minister, Seth Kwame Acheampong, revealed that the event which would be officially launched on February 14th 2024, will mark the region’s first-ever National Independence Day celebration, reflecting their readiness and enthusiasm to host the prestigious event.
