Gh@60 celebration to cost GHC20m

President Nana Akufo-Addo has revealed the total amount of Ghana’s 60th anniversary to be GHC20 million. An amount described as going contrary to his promise for a modest celebration.

The theme for the celebration is “Mobilising for Ghana’s Future” and President Akufo-Addo impressed on Ghanaians to use the celebration as period for reflection on what makes us Ghanaian.

Speaking at the unveiling ceremony at the Presidency, President Akufo-Addo expressed hope the cost of the celebration would be borne not only by the state but also Ghanaian citizens and organizations.

“This diamond jubilee commemoration is estimated to cost some GHc 20 million and I am hoping that individual Ghanaians, the Ghanaian private sector and corporate Ghana in particular, will provide the funds for this anniversary.”
