President John Dramani Mahama will on Sunday March 6 review a national parade of schoolchildren, voluntary organisations, and security services at the Black Star Square to commemorate the 59th Anniversary of Ghana’s independence.

The theme for this year’s celebration is: ‘Investing in the Youth for Ghana’s Transformation’ with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta attending as the Special Guest of Honour.

President Mahama, who is expected to be joined by two visiting heads of state, will deliver the independence anniversary address after a march past by security personnel and school children, drills and equipment display by the security agencies, and performances by various groups.

There will also be parades in all regional and district capitals across the country, while the country’s missions abroad will also host National Day events across the world.

On Saturday March 5, 2016, Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur will host the annual President’s Independence Day Awards at the State House.
