Shatta Wale selected among bearers of Queen's Baton Relay in Ghana

President Akufo-Addo was the first to bear the Queen’s Relay Baton after it arrived in the country on Monday, October 25, 2021.

The baton relay is an important part of the Commonwealth Games and will pass through 72 nations ahead of the Games in 2022.

The President of the Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), Ben Nunoo Mensah, said the baton will be paraded in Accra, Tema and Kumasi.

He also noted that, aside from President Akufo-Addo, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II will also bear the Queen’s Baton.

The Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif, 2020 Olympic bronze medallist Samuel Takyi and all other participants in the 2022 Commonwealth Games will also have a feel of it.

Lastly, some celebrities, including Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Kofi Kinaata and some foreign Diplomats have also been lined up as bearers of the baton.

“The baton will eventually leave Ghana on 28th of October to Cameroon and that would end its run in Ghana,” the GOC president added.

The 2022 Commonwealth Games will be hosted in Birmingham from July 8 to August 8 next year.
