Young people from all walks of life thronged the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park in Accra to celebrate the birthday of Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
21st September every year is set as a public holiday to celebrate and remember Nkrumah, whose legacy has inspired many generations in Ghana and beyond.
This year’s celebration was unique following the new facelift of the park.
Among the organisations represented were the Ghana Trade Fair Company and the Ghana China Friendship Association, where the young people there were given first hand information on products and services.
For the young people, some of whom spoke with GBC News, the moment carried a lot of lessons.
”It was a moment to remind us of our History as a people, and of Culture and Tradition.”
The Ghana Trade Fair Company used the opportunity to collaborate with the Ministry of Tourism, the Ghana Tourism Authority, the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park to bring to the fore the need to sell Ghana goods and services.
