Ken Amakwah, Chairman of the Ghana @60 Planning Committee has disclosed that the independence anniversary committee nearly imported the Ghanaian flags used at the parade from India.

He said if not for a last minute intervention from the Presidency, they would have been left with no option but to import the flags from China due to cost.

Speaking on Citi FM, he said the cost of procuring the flags in Ghana was way higher than importing them from China.

He also disclosed that the quantity they were looking for also created problems for the local suppliers. He said, "But we couldn’t bring them down from there so we had to fall on local printers and they couldn’t meet the quantities they wanted.”

Meanwhile, the planning committee revealed that moves to buy the flags from China never materialized as the government took a new turn to have them brought here in Ghana despite the cost and quality.
