According to a Joy News report, the committee members have resolved to forfeit all allowances and remuneration following public concern that the national celebration will be a burden on a struggling economy.

"The service to be rendered by the committee members will be strictly on a pro bono basis," a statement signed by Chair of the Committee, Ken Amankwa, said.

… Further, we are determined to religiously be guided by H.E. the President's directive for members to be mindful of the difficult financial and economic circumstances of our country, regarding our 60th-anniversary commemoration,” he added.

President Nana Akufo-Addo put together the Committee last week to mark the 60th Anniversary of Ghana's independence from British colonial rule in 1957.

But some critics say the Independence Day, March 6, 2017, is unnecessary since the economy of the country is in a bad state.
