Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo has suspended the mounting of parades as part of activities to mark Ghana’s 64th Independence Day. This directive is in line with measures put in place to avoid large gatherings as the country continues to deal with COVID-19.
In line with this, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has ordered all Heads of school in Ghana to suspend this year’s 6th March celebrations and its related activities in schools.
A statement by the service stated that this directive is as a result of the high prevalence rate of Covid-19 cases in the country. The statement also urged all Heads of school to ensure that its members comply with the notice.
The Independence Day celebrations in Ghana are mostly synonymous with well-rehearsed and coordinated parades from various schools across the country.
