Description DM2000011008:GHANAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:FEB1959 - A Partnership Begins - A dramatic meeting. A historic moment. The head of a newly-born state, M. Sekou Toure of Guinea, steps down from a plane on to the tarmac at Accra, Ghana. There to greet him is the head of another new state, a bare eighteen months senior to his own, Kwame Nkrumah. The two men embrace. Their two countries embrace as well. A courageous start has been made on a noble and imaginative project, a West African Federation which may one day bind the states of this area into a powerful union, a notable influence for the peace and happiness of the whole world.
