  • Description

    GHANA'S HEAD OF STATE, BRIGADIER AKWAGI AFRIFA, ARRIVED IN TOGO ON WEDNESDAY FOR A BRIEF GOODWILL VISIT TO THE PRESIDENT GENERAL ETIENNE EYADAMA.

    IT'S THE 33 YEAR OLD BRIGADIER'S FIRST VISIT OUTSIDE GHANA SINCE HE SUCCEEDED LIEUTENANT-GENERAL JOSEPH ANKRAH AS THE COUNTRY'S LEADER LAST MONTH.

    HIS DELEGATION INCLUDED THE VICE-CHAIRMAN OF THE RULING NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL MR. JOHN HARLLEY AND THE COMMISSIONER FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRIES, MR. RICHARD QUARSHIE.

    IT IS THOUGHT THAT THE BRIGADIER HAS ASSURED TOGO'S HEAD OF STATE THAT ALL SUBVERSIVE TOGOLESE ELEMENTS RESIDENT IN GHANA HAVE BEEN ROOTED OUT.

    LAST WEEK GHANA EXPELLED BONITO OLYMPIO SON OF FORMER TOGOLESE PRESIDENT SYLVANUS OLYMPIO, FOR PLOTTING WITH ANOTHER TOGOLESE TO OVERTHROW THE REGIME OF PRESIDENT EYADENA.
