There will be a 66th Independence Day celebration in the Volta region.

According to Mr. Lord Commey, Director of Operations at the President’s Office, His Excellency Akufo-Addo has decided to hold the country’s Independence Day celebration in the Volta Region.

He claims that the decision is in keeping with the president’s promise to rotate the event among the Regions in order to strengthen national unity.

When he brought members of the event’s national planning committee into the Region on Friday to alert traditional authorities to the development, he let them know.
Mr. Commey addressed the Asogli Traditional Council first, followed by other regional stakeholders, including Mr. Divine Bosson, the chief executive of the Ho Municipality.
“We are here to notify you that the President has decided to honor the Volta people by having the Region host the 66th anniversary of Ghana’s independence. This important celebration of Ghana’s independence cannot continue to be held alone in Independence Square. He has determined that the Volta Region, Ghana’s “oxygen city,” should take the lead this year.
In order to ensure that the celebration is a “full manifestation of a national character,” he said, the meeting’s main goal was to secure the cooperation of local stakeholders, in particular traditional authority.
Mr. Commey also praised the benefits to the neighborhood’s economy.
It is an honor to know that this event in Volta will be taking place in our territory, the warlord of the Asogli State, Togbe Adzie Lakle Howusu XII, remarked.
He declared that the celebration would undoubtedly go down in history and convey the honor of independence to the area.
Togbe Tepre Hodo, President of the Volta Region House of Chiefs, declared that the Region would support the event totally in order to make it one of the greatest.
“I can guarantee you that the Volta Region has plenty to contribute in terms of demonstrating devotion to this wonderful mother Ghana, and we will use all of our resources to make this celebration the greatest,” the speaker said.


Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa, the Volta Regional Minister, led the group to the House of Chiefs, and the team then went to the brand-new Ho sports stadium to see how construction was going.
When the team arrived, work on the 5000-capacity facility, which had previously slowed, was almost finished.
After visiting the location, the Office of the President’s Director of Operations tasked participants with using the occasion to promote the Region.
