    Background: LIEUTENANT GENERAL ANKARHA, CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL OF GHANA, DECLARED DURING AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO KOFORIDUA, IN THE EASTERN REGION OF THE COUNTRY, ON WEDNESDAY (10TH AUGUST) THAT HIS COUNTRYMEN WOULD NEVER AGAIN BE SUBJECTED TO TYRANNY AND OPPRESSION.

    THE GENERAL MADE HIS STATEMENT TO A GRAND DURBAR HELD IN HIS HONOUR AT KOFORIDUA. HE SAID THAT THE NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL WOULD SEE TO IT THAT POWER WAS NEVER AGAIN CONCENTRATED IN THE HANDS OF ONE SINGLE PERSON, WHO COULD TAMPER WITH THE COUNTRY'S CONSTITUTION.

    BEFORE THE DURBAR, GENERAL ANKRAH DROVE THROUGH KOFORIDUA, ESCORTED BY POLICE OUTRIDERS, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LINED THE STREETS TO CHEER HIM AND HIS COLLEAGUES ON THEIR WAY TO THE DURBAR GROUND.
