One-hundred-and-fifty Diplomats are expected to grace the 63rd independence anniversary celebration of the Republic of Ghana, slated for Friday, March 06, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi, the capital of the Asanti Region.

Chairman in-charge of the Anniversary Planning Committee, Mr. Laud Commey, briefing the media in Kumasi on final preparations for the event, said adequate security measures had been put in place for the safety of the invited guests and the general public.

The programme, which would be climaxed with an independence parade, seeks to tell the success story of the nation after more than six decades of self-rule.

“We have over the years been the trailblazers championing the cause of Africa’s development, and this occasion presents Ghana with the opportunity to tell the world of the journey so far,” he noted.

A visit by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) to the Stadium saw workers of the National Sports Authority, managers of the facility, putting final touches to the renovation works to enhance the scenic beauty of Ghana’s biggest sports facility.
