By gna

All persons in possession of memorabilia taken from the former Flagstaff House should return them to be exhibited, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mr. Stephen Asamoah-Boateng urged on Monday.

In an official statement in Accra, he said the old residency at the former Flagstaff House had been rehabilitated for use as a museum.

“It is intended to display, as much as possible, the furniture, equipment, crockery and other items that were in use during the occupancy of the of the residency by the late ex-president Dr Kwame Nkrumah,” Mr Asamoah-Boateng said.

He noted that unfortunately, all the items had ended up in individual homes.

“The Ministry of Information and National Orientation appeals to any person or group of persons in possession of any of such items to kindly return them to the Acting Chief Director of the Ministry to be exhibited in the old residency,” the Minister said.
