  • Description

    BRIGADIER A. A. AFRIFA, MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL LIBERATION COUNCIL AND COMMISSIONER FOR FINANCE, HAS CALLED ON ALL GHANAIANS TO BE CONSCIOUS OF THEIR CIVIL RIGHTS SO THAT THE COUNTRY DOES NOT EXPERIENCE AGAIN "THE SUBJUGATION AND HUMILIATION" IMPOSED BY ONE MAN. THE BRIGADIER MADE HIS REFERENCE TO THE DEPOSED GHANAIAN PRESIDENT, KWAME NKRUMAH, DURING A SPEECH TO A DURBAR OF CHIEFS AND PEOPLE OF EASTERN AND WESTERN NZIMA, AT AWIEBO JUNCTION, DURING HIS TOUR OF THE NZIMA AREA.

    THE BRIGADIER AND HIS PARTY WAS GIVEN A ROUSING WELCOME BY THE CHIEFS AT THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE TOWN. HE WARNED THE GATHERING THAT, WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR THE ELECTION OF CANDIDATES TO PARLIAMENT, ONLY MEN OF WISDOM, INTEGRITY, TOLERANCE AND GOD-FEARING WOULD BE ELECTED.

    THE DURBAR WAS ROUNDED OFF WITH DANCING. BRIGADIER AFRIFA THEN WENT TO HALF ASSINI, WHERE HE MET THE CAPTAINS OF THE AREA AT THE GOVERNMENT LODGE, AND CALLED ON THE PEOPLE TO WORK HARD TO ENABLE THE GOVERNMENT TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE. HE SAID THE NEEDS OF GHANA CAN NO LONGER BE SOLVED WITH MACHINE GUNS BUT BY HARD WORK.

    THE BRIGADIER ROUNDED OFF HIS TOUR WITH A VISIT TO THE JEWEY WHARF NEAR HALF ASSINI. IT IS THE MAIN SOUTHERN GATEWAY BETWEEN GHANA AND THE IVORY COAST.
