The Korle Klottey Municipal Assembly (KoKMA) the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and some sister Assemblies in the Greater Accra Area have collaborated with the private sector to lit up the city of Accra for the Christmas festivities.
The event was launched at the AU Circle in Accra on Tuesday, 22nd December 2020 to simultaneously symbolise the litting up of Kumasi and Takoradi Metropolis.
This year's occasion dubbed "Lightup the City 2020" has been an improvement from the maiden event last year, this time, with more private sector sponsorship support and participation in the preparations to make it a success.
In his welcome address, the Municipal Chief Executive for KoKMA, Hon Nii Adjei Tawiah, noted that the year 2020 stand out as an exceptional year within the dispensation for which Ghanaians equally needed to adapt during celebration of Christmas festivities with the observance of the COVID-19 Protocols in mind.
He appealed to corporate bodies entities, International organizations, Associations and individuals to join forces to sustain that instituted project.
The light up the city of Accra project will for the second time see the ceremonial Streets of the capital decorated under the agenda of beautifying the city with Christmas trees and light, adding the Ghanaian flavor to it.
The median of most of the ceremonial roads from the Central business district through Ako Adjei interchange via the jubilee house to the Airport Around-about and Tetteh Quarshie interchange and many areas will be decorated with colorful lights to signal the general public into the festive mood.
