Ghanaians have been urged by the Convention People’s Party (CPP) to abstain from the Independence Day commemoration because it no longer holds any meaning.
The CPP argued that spending so much money on the 6th March festivities at a time when the nation is experiencing its worst economic crisis was a wrong priority on the part of the government.
Nana Yaa Gyantuah, general secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), urged the government to put more effort into finding ways to end the present economic disaster.
“It doesn’t make sense to the CPP that today, there is a celebration. Today is the day that Ghanaians should boycott the celebration because we are not independent. When Kwame Nkrumah and the CPP were in power, China was our protege but today we are going to China to beg because Akufo-Addo has mismanaged the economy. Since the economy is in dire straits, Ghanaians should boycott the celebration to send a strong signal.”
