Tamale the Northern regional capital is all set for the 62nd Independence anniversary today, March 6.

This historic event in Tamale has led to the city having a facelift as shoulders of principal streets in the metropolis have been painted.

Reports indicate that hotels and guest houses in the Tamale metropolis are fully booked ahead of today’s event.

This will be the first time the Independence Day celebration will be celebrated outside Ghana’s capital of Accra.

This year’s Independence Celebration is on the theme: “Celebrating Peace and Unity.”

The main event which will be held at the 20,000 seater capacity Aliu Mahama sports stadium will have The President of Niger Mahamadou Issoufou, as the Special Guest of Honor.

On March 6, 1957, the Gold Coast, now known as Ghana, gained independence from Britain.

Ghana became a member of the Commonwealth of Nations and was led to independence by Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who transformed the country into a republic, with himself as president.
