    There have been celebrations throughout the Togolese Republic to mark the 11th anniversary of President Etienne Gnassingbe Eyadema's rule.

    SYNOPSIS: General Eyadema came to power in 1967 after a military coup d'etat overthrew the government of President Nicholas Grunitzky. The celebrations, here in the capital Lome, and elsewhere, mark that event. He was proclaimed President in April 1967. Throughout the country the anniversary was marked with celebrations and there were awards for those who have served the State.

    To mark the event, President Eyadema has also announced economic measures to benefit farmers. They will be exempted from civic taxes for the fourth consecutive year and more machinery will be put at their disposal. Students too, benefit with an increase in scholarships.
