5. State of the Economy and the poor.

The chairman for the meeting will be chosen when the members meet. It is highly believed that Mr. William Ofori Atta, popularly called "Paa Willie" will be elected to chair this memorable and momentous meeting. Paa was the Chair of the 3rd. Republican Council of State.

Mr. Ako Adjei is to be the secretary. He could have been the Secretary of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) but rather recommended Kwame Nkrumah, who he had met when they were students at the University of Pennsylvania in USA.

* The media would not be allowed in but a communique would be released at the end of the meeting.

* There will be a Dinner/Dance in the evening at the State House Banquet Hall. Participants at the meeting will attend the evening's programme with their spouses. Top political leaders including Mr John Mahama and Nana Akuffo Addo and members of the Diplomatic Corps will also attend.
