High Ideals for Military Government

September 9, 1975

The coup leaders, led by Col. I.K. Acheampong, formed the National Redemption Council (NRC) to which they admitted other officers, the head of the police, and one civilian. The NRC promised improvements in the quality of life for all Ghanaians and based its programs on nationalism, economic development, and self-reliance. In 1975, government reorganization resulted in the NRC’s replacement by the Supreme Military Council (SMC), also headed by now-General Acheampong.
