The 40th anniversary celebrations of the June 4 uprising will kick off Saturday, May 25, with tree-planting by cadres and sympathisers of the revolution.

Also planned for the celebrations will be a lecture on May 29, to be followed by a durbar to climax the celebrations on June 4, 2019 at the Nungua Traditional Authority Park.

This year’s celebration is themed: “Developing a national character for sustainable good governance’.

The Tree-Planting

The planting of trees which starts at 6am this Saturday will be from the Tetteh Quarshie interchange to the Legon ECG Park.

The exercise which is open to the public is to celebrate the environmental credentials of the leader of the uprising, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings. The former Head of State is expected to plant the first tree to kickstart the exercise.

The spate of indiscriminate felling of trees without recourse to planting new ones is having dire consequences on the climate and the exercise is to encourage Ghanaians to re-embrace tree-planting as a way of life and to mitigate the effect of climate change and foster a cooler environment.

Lecture

A renowned management expert, Professor John Bright Aheto, will on May 29, deliver a lecture, at the Amegashie Conference Hall of the University of Ghana Business School.

Professor Aheto is the immediate past Dean of the School of Business at Central University College and a former Deputy Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration. The lecture will start at 2pm.

Prof Aheto will speak to the theme of the celebrations after which a distinguished panel comprising personalities such as Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah, Prof Joshua Alabi, Prof John Gatsi, Dr. Deborah Cubagee and Goosie Tanoh will dissect the lecture.

Durbar

Flt Lt Rawlings and other leading members of the uprising and the 31st December Revolution will then address the climax of the celebrations at the Nungua Traditional Authority Park on Tuesday June 4.

The celebrations will start at 8am with a parade by young cadres followed by the lighting of the perpetual flame before the traditional address by the leader of the uprising.

The public is invited to all the celebrations.
