Ghana attained Republican status on July 1, 1960, with Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah as its first President. Consequently, Ghana was governed by a new Constitution, which was prepared by the citizens themselves based not only on the historical traditions and true character of Ghanaians, but also provided a form of government that truly interpreted and reflected the aspirations and hopes of the people, thus giving full expression to the African Personality concept.

This action, figuratively, severed the umbilical cord which tied the destiny of this country to the apron string of the colonial masters. Ghana, however, opted to remain in the British Commonwealth with the Queen as the ceremonial head.

The joy, splendour and solemnity that characterised the celebration were not only fantastic but infectious. The excitement was justifiable because after three years of Ghana’s attainment of independence, the country had been ruled under a Constitution that embraced provisions, institutions and customs deeply alien to its history, traditions and customs. In effect, as Ghana matured into freedom, the need for constitutional reforms became more and more insistent.

Ghana marks it’s Republic Day on the 1st of July every year to celebrate another historic event in the history of the country. 

The day is also set to socialise with senior citizens of the nation, where they dine and dance to their favourite Ghanaian tunes.
