As part of cultural activities of the European University of Lefke, the Ghanaian independence day was celebrated at the University recently. The event themed “Ghana Independence Day” aimed at Ghanaian students receiving education at EUL. Several shows accompanied by cultural music were performed during the event.
Various video film shows about the cultural characteristics of Ghana took place at the event which was held with intense participation at the EUL Centre of Social and Cultural Activities. In addition to the introduction of traditional dishes, Ghanaian students in special folkloric clothes celebrated their national day with enthusiasm by singing and dancing with specific music of their country.
