He noted that "At the end of the exercise, Ghanaians will be proud of it. Apart from the first phase, the other programmes are private people’s initiatives and what they are asking from the committee is some support, for example the Musicians Union of Ghana, (MUSIGA). If you talk to Obuor and co., this is MUSIGA putting things together and they want to be associated with Ghana@60 and we are giving them the support – they have their own sponsorship."

He added that the committee will account for every pesewa spent on the anniversary to Ghanaians, "because transparency is key, proper accountability is also very key”, adding: “The president has cautioned everybody…we just need support from the Ghanaian people."
