  • Description

    Ghana's Head of State, Colonel I.k.Acheampong, told guests at a festival in his honour on Saturday (August 26) that the handover of power to civilians would take place only when the National Redemption Council was satisfied "that firm foundations have been laid both economically and socially for our people".

    It was the firs time since the January 13th takeover by the Army that mention had been made of a handover of power to a civilian administration.

    The festival, or dubar - organised by Ghana's National House of Chiefs - was the scene of colourful tribal dancing and music, as well as presentations by Colonel Acheampong to leading figures in Ghana's cultural life.
