    Background: THE 23RD ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION WAS CELEBRATED, IN ACCRA ON THURSDAY (24 OCTOBER) WITH A CEREMONY AT WHICH THE GHANA AND UNITED NATIONS FLAGS WERE RAISED.

    MR. NUNOO, COMMISSIONER OF POLICE (ADMINISTRATION) AND MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION COMMITTEE, WHO RAISED THE GHANA FLAG, PAID TRIBUTE TO THE WORK AND IDEALS OF THE ORGANISATION.

    A FURTHER TRIBUTE CAME FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION COMMITTEE, LT-GENERAL ANKRAH, IN A CONGRATULATORY MESSAGE SENT TO U.N. SECRETARY U THANT.

    IN HIS MESSAGE, LT-GENERAL ANKRAH EXPRESSED HIS "DEEP SATISFACTION THAT DESPITE INSUPERABLE DIFFICULTIES AND SET-BACKS, THE ORGANISATION HAD DEMONSTRATED ITS CAPACITY FOR SURVIVAL AND ITS POTENTIALITIES FOR THE PROMOTION AND PEACE AND SECURITY."
    MR. NUNOO SAID THE ORGANISATION WAS "STILL MANKIND'S GREATEST HOPE FOR LIFTING THE WORLD OUT OF INSECURITY, POVERTY AND HUNGER." HE ALSO INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR FORMED BY THE ACHIMOTA SCHOOL CADET CORPS.

    THE UNITED NATIONS FLAG WAS RAISED BY M. MARCEL LATOUR, PRESIDENT REPRESENTATIVE OF THE U.N.'S DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME.
