The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo has pledged two hundred million Ghana cedis through the Defence Ministry in support of the Veterans Association of Ghana describing them as special people in the history of Ghana.
President Akufo Addo on Tuesday joined the Veterans Association of Ghana to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the 28th February Christianborg crossroads shooting incident.
EIB’s Wilberforce Asare reported that the ceremony took place at the Cenotaph (Nationalism Park) at Osu in Accra.
The 28th February Shooting incident is celebrated every year to honour the defenceless ex- servicemen who in 1948 were killed by the colonial police while marching peacefully to the Osu castle to present a petition to the Governor.
The shooting incident was re-enacted in honour of the three servicemen, Sgt Adjeitey, CPL Atipoe, and PTE Odartey Lamptey who were killed during the shooting incident.
