President Nana Akufo-Addo has inspected the 'Ghana @60' independence parade.

The parade is being held at the Black Star Square.

He inspected the parade mounted by the Army, Navy, Air Force, Police, Fire Service, Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority and the Immigration contingent.

The parade inspection was preceded by traditional, Islamic and Christian prayers.

Foreign heads of state in attendance are the Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe and Togolese President Faure Gnassingbé.

Others in attendance are former presidents Jerry John Rawlings, Kufuor and John Mahama. Former first ladies Nana Kunadu Rawlings and Lordina Mahama are also in attendance.

Shortly after the parade, the president lit the perpetual flame and the "Ghana @60 on" relay torch.

It was then given to iconic boxer Asumah Nelson who will hand it over to the Greater Accra Regional Minister.

It will go to all regional capitals.

The relay torch signifies the year-long celebrations of Ghana's 60th independence anniversary.
