  • Description

    THE GHANAIAN COMMISSIONER FOR COMMUNICATIONS, NANA MATHIEW POKU, THIS WEEK DECLARED THE NEW ACCRA POST OFFICE OPEN, WHEN HE BOUGHT THE FIRST STAMP OVER THE COUNTER. THE POST OFFICE IS EQUIPPED WITH EVERY MODERN FACILITY, AND WILL EASE MUCH OF THE COMMUNICATIONS LOAD ON THE CITY'S MAIN POST OFFICE.

    NANA POKU WAS INTRODUCED TI SENIOR STAFF AT THE POST OFFICE BY GHANA'S DIRECTOR OF POSTS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS, MR KORAN, WHO WAS ALSO TAKING PART IN THE OPENING CEREMONY. LATER MR KORAN CONDUCTED THE COMMISSIONER OVER THE POST OFFICE. AT THE GENERAL COUNTER NANA POKU BROUGHT SOME STAMPS, AND IN THE CANCELLING ROOM HE WAS ABLE TO SEE THEM SORTED AND CANCELLED AUTOMATICALLY.

    THE TELEPHONE EXCHANGE PLANT IS ALSO COMPLETELY AUTOMATIC. MR BROWN, SENIOR OFFICER IN THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS SECTION, EXPLAINED THE FUNCTIONS OF THE EQUIPMENT TO THE COMMISSIONER.

    THE NEW EXCHANGE HAS TELEPHONE FACILITIES FOR OVER 8,000 SUBSCRIBERS, AND CALLS CAN BE MADE TO ANY PART OF THE COUNTRY WITHOUT GOING THROUGH THE MAIN EXCHANGE AT THE ACCRA POST OFFICE.
