    Background: Upper Volta celebrated the 12th anniversary of the declaration of independence last weekend (August 5). Many people who had helped build up the independent state received decorations during ceremonies in Ouagadougou. The presentations were watched by president Sangoule Lamizana.

    During an anniversary speech, the President called on his people to cultivate authentic national values. "My profound conviction is that the welfare of our dear Volta, so sparsely favoured by nature, rests in the co-operation of the sons of the country within a unified and well-founded nation," added the President.
