Ghana needs Annan''s advice - JJ 1/25/2007
Accra, Jan. 24, GNA - Former President Jerry John Rawlings on Wednesday appealed to Busumuru Kofi Annan, Immediate-Past United Nations Secretary-General, to observe the country''s political scene and offer his advice.
Former President made the appeal when Busumuru Annan paid a courtesy call on him at his residence in Accra, at about 14:00 today.

Busumuru Annan had served the UN for 40 years out which he was Secretary-General of the world body for 10 years.

Former President Rawlings asked Busumuru Annan to bring his expertise and knowledge to bear on the development of the country and to join to straighten the course of peace and stability. Former President Rawlings told Mr Annan: "We are happy about the reception the Government has given you and that of the people of Ghana."

Busumuru Annan said he was happy to be home after years of service to the UN and acknowledged the reception accorded him by the good people of Ghana.

He commended Former President Rawlings for the leadership he provided the country and said both of them served humanity but in different capacities.
Busumuru Annan further called for a concerted effort by the Government, the opposition parties and civil society to help to build a better Ghana.

With the Former President Rawlings were Professor John Evans Atta Mills, Former Vice President and Flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress for Election 2008 and Mrs Mary Grant, a Former Member of the Council of State.

Professor Mills also expressed joy at the homecoming of Busumuru Annan describing him as a man of knowledge and high sense of duty, worthy of honour.

He urged Busumuru Annan to exhibit his courage to right the wrongs of the Ghanaian society by speaking the truth.

Mrs Mary Grant, who said Busumuru Annan was her nephew, described him as the pride of the family and traced his success to the training he acquired as a Ghanaian and an African.
