We need all hands on deck: Ghana@60 C’ttee calls

Jefferson Sackey[/caption] The Ghana@60 Committee is entreating all and sundry to get involved in all activities leading up to the celebration of Ghana’s 60th anniversary. According to the Chairman of the Media and Branding Sub-committee Jefferson Sackey, Ghana has come a long way and it is important to continue holding the nation together in unity, and with togetherness, then success of the nation is inevitable. Speaking on Onua 95.1FM morning show “Yen Nsem Pa” with Bright Asempa, the Chairman of the Media and Branding Sub-committee remarked, “This is a national celebration and we must go about it devoid of partisanship. The interest of the nation is paramount to any individual’s interest, therefore we all have to get together and make this year’s celebration a grand success.” Among many of the legacies that the celebration promises to leave behind would be the “I pledge campaign”, which is basically an ideological campaign, Jefferson Sackey explained. “For example, you Asempa as a radio host will pledge to use your radio to educate people on a subject that will promote the goodness of the country that can also bring change in the life of your listeners. A nurse also should be able to make a pledge that they will also keep and observe and when we can all do this, you can imagine the change that it will bring,” Jefferson posited. Another innovation being introduced by the Planning Committee of this year’s Ghana’s Independence Day celebration is taking the Independence Day torch to every region in Ghana. This he said is to signify and achieve a national unity, ensuring that all the ten administrative regions enjoy the blessings of the torch, which hitherto remained at the Black Star Square. At the national event to be held in Accra, there would be cultural display from all the 10 regions to showcase the rich traditions of Ghana to the world and also enhance the unity in the country. “When I said this year’s celebration is unique, I mean we will introduce several innovations. One of them is to have regional representation of cultural performances. It is not just going to be student match pass but there must be legacies left after the celebration.” By Bright Dzakah |Onua FM | 3news.com]]>
