Working Together, Bouncing Back Together: <strong>66th Independence Day in pictures</strong>

In line with the regional rotation regime, it was the turn of the Volta Region to host the 66th Independence Day Celebrations in style.

Critics, as usual, said there was nothing to celebrate but the region, clearly, was prepared to host and show­case its rich heritage to the hundreds of dignitaries who turned up for the event.

The parade at the Volta Regional Youth Resource Cen­tre at Adaklu-Tsrefe, near Ho, was well attended by mem­bers of the various security agencies, students and pupils from senior high schools and basic schools respectively in the municipality, as well as representatives of various groups.

The occasion was graced by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who was the special guest of honour and President Umaro Sissoco Embalo of Guinea Bissau, who is also the Chairman of the Economic Community West African States (ECOWAS).

Held on the theme:“Work­ing Together, Bouncing Back Together,” many took the opportunity to express their patriotism in diverse ways.

Apart from the beautiful images captured at parades across the region, some ce­lebrities and citizens dressed in colourful Kente and other indigenous outfits to cele­brate the day.

Here are some extras of the celebrations as captured by photographers who were out and about.
