John & John display patriotism; as Ghana marks 60th anniversary


Ghana’s 60years anniversary celebration couldn’t have been memorable without having two Former Heads of State, Former President John Dramani Mahama and Former President Jerry John Rawlings attending the Independence parade, wearing a glittering anniversary cloth, customized basically for this year’s event, as they help mark the occasion.

The two Johns’ in Ghana’s political history, displayed a true Africanism and patriotism, when spotted at the parade ground in a beautifully made African shirt with a customized African fabric, made specially for this years’ Independence celebration.

Earlier in a tweet, the former President John Dramani Mahama called on Ghanaians to ensure that the country becomes an “even better” place in the next 60 years.

Former President writes… “I salute all Ghanaians. Let’s dedicate ourselves, on this occasion, to make the next 60 years even better.”

Ghana gained independence from Britain on this day in 1957.

Just like the previous years, this year-long celebration has been marked with a series of events.

As today has been the tradition over the years, there was a march past of schoolchildren, security personnel’s and other unions at the Independence Square to climax the annual celebration.img-20170306-wa0082
