President Nana Akufo-Addo has urged the current generation of Ghanaians to bequeath to their children and the generations unborn, a nation of hope and opportunity, not despair and retrogression.
According to him, “We must all step up and play significant roles in the development of Ghana, our motherland. Let us bequeath to our children, their children, and generations unborn a nation of hope and opportunity, not one of despair and retrogression.”
The President made the call in his 64th Independence Day message to the nation on Saturday, March 6, 2021.
The 2021 edition of the Independence Day parade was held at the forecourt of the Jubilee House in Accra due to the Coronavirus safety protocols.
In his statement, Mr Akufo-Addo recounted that “Sixty-four (64) years ago, we freed our nation, Ghana, from the shackles of colonialism and imperialism. We were the first nation, in colonial Africa, to gain our independence from the colonial power, and, thus, became the torchbearer of the struggle for liberation of the African continent.”
“Happy 64th Independence Day Celebration to all of us, and may God bless us all and our homeland Ghana, and make her great and strong,” according to him.
