Centralise Independence Day celebration to drastically save cost – MP.

Sylvester Tetteh, the Member of Parliament for the Bortiano Ngleshie Amanfro Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, has proposed a centralised Independence Day celebration across the 16 regions of Ghana to reduce costs.

Tetteh emphasized that centralizing the event would significantly decrease the expenses incurred during the multiple celebrations across the districts.

Tetteh stressed that the executive arm of the government should consider his suggestion, given the country’s financial situation. He pointed out that Ghana is currently grappling with significant debt, and pragmatic decisions need to be implemented to save the country.

Tetteh stated that the Metropolitan Municipal and District Assemblies’ centralised parade within the Greater Accra Region saved over 60 percent of the cost incurred in previous years. He recommended that the remaining 15 regions replicate the move to tackle the financial crises the country was facing.

Tetteh highlighted that the Independence Day celebration serves as a moment where the country takes stock of its gains and reflects on how to make progress in the years ahead. Therefore, the event must be celebrated, but with a conscious effort to cut down expenses.

In support of Tetteh’s recommendation Henry Quartey, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, disclosed that hosting a consolidated Regional Independence Day in the region instead of the usual detached District celebrations saved the country over GHs1.5 million.

Quartey called on Ghanaians, especially residents of the region, to continue deepening the country’s democracy as Ghana commemorates its independence and the 30th anniversary of the fourth republic. In conclusion, centralising the Independence Day celebration across the 16 regions of Ghana would reduce costs and enable the country to tackle its financial crises.
