Ivan Sache, 26 Jun 1999, quoting [smi75b]
Workers of the Ghana Railway Company (GRC) throughout the country have started flying red-flags at all installations of the company as a sign of their threat to withdraw their services and also embark upon massive street demonstration to protest against the delay in the adjustment of the tariff paid by the Ghana Bauxite Company (GBC) which they consider as meagre.

Emmanuel Enoch Agbozo, Head Pastor of the Ghana Evangelical Society advised the president to change the flag of the country since «its spiritual power is gone forever». A new flag, white with a cross and a crown of thorn covering the cross, would mark the beginning of a new Ghana, founded in God, and move the nation to its former glory.
