Ghana’s celebrated star, Tic Tac, has charged Ghanaians to eschew partisan politics and show patriotism in the celebration of the country’s Independence Day.
According to him, the show of patriotism is the only path to economic growth and peaceful coexistence.
The music gem made the statement in Accra yesterday at the Press launch of Freedom Concert aimed at celebrating the country’s 59 years of emancipation from external control.
The multiple award winner, said some Ghanaians fail to participate in the country’s independence day celebration when their political party is out of power.
He said the day is meant to celebrate the toil of the forefathers who struggled in achieving freedom, adding that on such day, that patriotism should be celebrated.
He said freedom is a vital component to comfort in life and must be valued.
“Until your freedom is taken away from, you realise it is expensive”, Tic Tac said.
Tic Tac also indicated that the political parties may fade away but Ghana would remain.
“Ghana is bigger than every political party”, he said.
He therefore urged Ghanaians to go out in their numbers to make merry.
“All Ghanaians should go out there and celebrate. Those in Kumasi and Accra should come and see me perform live at the freedom concert on March 5 and 6 respectively”, he added.
