The Local Organising Committee of the 36th anniversary of Revolution Day which will be observed on Sunday, December 31, 2017 in the Volta Regional capital, Ho, says all is set for a successful commemoration.

A statement issued by the committee said Revolution Day which is being marked pursuant to Article 54 (V) of the Constitution of the National Democratic Congress, is under the distinguished auspices of the former President of Ghana and Founder of the NDC, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.

The celebration is on the theme; "Uniting around the Principles of Probity, Accountability and Social Justice."

The statement signed by Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah, Chairman, Local Organising Committee said the committee has enjoyed tremendous support from all stakeholders including former President Rawlings' office, former President John Mahama's office, party leadership at the national and the regional level, the parliamentary minority caucus, Volta MPs caucus, cadres and all other wings of NDC.

“The Chiefs, Security Services and the good people of the Volta Region have all been extremely supportive in our organization.

“The programme will begin with a route march from Dome Park, Ho at 6am through the principal streets of Ho to end at the Captain Nfodjo Park - Civic Centre, where we shall all converge for a series of activities to climax the event.

“It is to be noted that the commemoration is open to all. Rumors making the rounds that some people have been banned from the event are only calculated to divide our ranks and sow the very seed of disunity which this year's Revolution Day programme seeks to vanquish.

We are looking forward to welcoming all believers in the revolution to Ho as we observe what promises to be a memorable event.”
