All is set for the 63rd Independence Day parade which in being held at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi, Ashanti Region today, March 6, 2020.
It is the first in history such a an occasion is being held in the Ashanti Region.
Below are photos from the venue:
The Builsa South constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have warned the NDC MP for the Builsa South Constituency, Clement Apaak, to desist from tarnishing the image of the District Chief Executive of the area, Hon Daniel Kwame Gariba.
In a statement signed by Thomas Achanga, NPP Communications Officer for Builsa South, the executives accused Mr Apaak of sponsoring some negative media publications against the DCE.
“The Builsa South Constituency Executives have noted with concern the vile attempts by Dr Clement Apaak and his party to tarnish the hard won reputation of our hard working District Chief Executive, Hon Daniel Kwame Gariba,” the statement said.
Below is the full statement:
The Builsa South Constituency Executives have noted with concern the vile attempts by Dr Clement Apaak and his party to tarnish the hard won reputation of our hard working District Chief Executive, Hon Daniel Kwame Gariba.
His modus operandi is to hide behind needless issues for publication against the DCE hoping that the good people of Builsa South will buy into it but more often than not he has always failed woefully in those attempts.
The latest strategy of Dr Clement Apaak is to churn out stories that suggest that NPP members in the Constituency are at war with the Hon DCE. We wish to state unequivocally that Builsa South NPP is one of the most United Constituencies in the Region if not the country where the DCE synchronises very well with his Constituency Executives and other party faithful(s) in the District and beyond.
Hon Daniel Gariba also relates very well with the Chiefs and people of Builsa South.
It is this growing image of the DCE in the Constituency that is creating a big discomfort to the MP. He has noted in recent times that his image in the Constituency is fast sinking with most of the people labelling him as the worst MP in the history of Builsa South. What has made it even worse for him, which has triggered fear pangs in him is the results of the Political Science Department findings on performance of MPs. In that report only 11.11% of the people said they will vote for him as MP in 2020 whiles about 80% of respondents said they will not vote again for him.
The crux of his fear is that, when Hon Daniel Gariba wins the NPP primary in Builsa South, he [Dr Apaak] will become a one-term MP. Indeed we in NPP have resolved he will be nothing will safe him from that predicament.
Our advice to Dr Apaak is that he should focus on fulfilling the numerous promises he made to the good people of Builsa South and stop the malicious attempt to drag our DCE into needless media war. The promises are fulfilled in the constituency and not in the media.
Hon Daniel Gariba, our DCE, is very focused on helping his Excellency the President Prosecute his Agenda towards the Ghanaian people and by extension the good people of Builsa South and will not be distracted by your vile propaganda.
Readers will recall that in our earlier rejoinder in reaction to a similar publication on the 26 June, 2019 we dared the cowards to come out with their identities and stop living behind smokescreens. Shortly after the story was out Dr Apaak sent out a press release purporting that we have accused him in that rejoinder. Meanwhile at no point in that rejoinder was his name or that of his party mentioned. Clearly when bones are discussed in the presence of old ladies they become uncomfortable. He indeed sent a personal note to the Hon DCE serving notice that he will respond in the newspaper. This time the coward decided to mention names of NPP members some of who contested Constituency elections and lost
As we write this rejoinder we have information and have verified that, the names mentioned in the publication have denied knowledge of any such interviews granted them by the newspaper and have dared for an audio evidence of their involvement and have threatened legal action against the newspaper. In fact, we can confirm that Thomas Adama has called the media house to deny his involvement in the story and has even threatened legal action.
We are, therefore, calling on well-meaning Ghanaians to disregard the publication and treat it with contempt. Builsa South NPP is united than ever and poised to crush any opponent who stands in the way of our 2020 victory for both Presidential and Parliamentary.
Communications Officer, NPP Builsa South

Throughout the auditions of Atinka Media village’s Di Asa season three, Kpassa has been identified as one of the most welcoming places anyone can be.
Right from when the Di Asa team got to the town, through the auditions and departure, the hospitable nature of the people was everything to write home about.
It was realised that where the audition was held was a security zone, where curfew had been placed and nobody was allowed to hold any programme after 6p.m.
It was also understood that whoever holds a programme after 6 p.m. at such places would face the wrath of the security personnel, except with the permission of the security and the Chief who initiated the curfew.
However, despite the above fact, instead of being dispersed by the security, the army men rather provided security for the Di Asa audition while the Paramount Chief of Kpassa Traditional Area, Ubor Hassan Konja VI, also gave his support to enable the show become a success.
Aside that, the people were very warm and also could not stay in their homes to miss Di Asa, despite the fact that they knew of the curfew.
The AMV appreciates everyone who supports Di Asa and encourages the public to continue to show much love as the Di Asa season three team brings the award winning show to their domain.
The next auditions, however, will be held at Goaso in the Ahafo Region on Wednesday, May 29th, 2019.

An articulated truck carrying a 40-footer container has fallen on its side on the Nkrumah Circle, ‘Dubai’ Interchange.
The truck, with registration number, AS 4258 N was believed to be heading towards the Industrial Area from Ring Road when the accident occurred.
It is unclear what caused the accident, but eye witness’ account indicated that the driver who used the highest overpass lost control on the gears, which made the vehicle draw back, and fell unto the ground.
According to reports by Atinka Fm, the truck was carrying soda chemicals while it crashed into the metals on the side of the bridge, resulting into the fall of the vehicle.
At the time the incident occurred, reports indicated that there were no vehicles around and so the truck fell flat on the ground without harming any vehicles or persons.
Although no deaths were recorded, the situation had caused massive traffic.
Meanwhile, the driver who according to eye-witness was alone in the truck vanished from the scene immediately the incident occurred.
However, personnel from Road Safety, the Ghana National Fire Service and the police were around to control the situation.
The Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) at the Nima Division of the MTTD, Augustina Enti, urged drivers not to use the highest overpass when they have such heavy loads on their vehicles.

The auditions of Atinka Media village’s (AMV) Di Asa season three which was held at Ho in the Volta Region was one of the smoothest ever since auditions started.
From the beginning of the set up till the end of the show, everything was successful with no set backs.
Ever since auditions started, the Di Asa team had been confronted with some few challenges including heavy rainfall and black out, although the AMV had put in place a generator to safeguard the situation whenever it occurred.
At Ho, the weather was very friendly, the contestants were on top of their game while the audience were very receptive and fantastic.
Although it did not rain, it was also not sunny, resulting into a successful execution of the show.
Meanwhile, at the end of the show, two plus size women were automatically qualified as representatives of the Volta Region, of which they will be in the Di Asa house after auditions.
The next auditions, however, will be held at Kpasa in the Oti Region on Friday.
