Ghanaian Navy on Alert after Pirate Attack

The Ghanaian navy has been put on alert following the attack on a Greek oil tanker by pirates off the coast of Togo. The pirates took 24 crew members hostage. On the Togo mainland things still look unstable as President Faure Gnassingbe refuses to step down. Like Assad in Syria and Kim  Jong Il in North Korea, Gnassingbe inherited the post from his father Gnassingbe Eyadema who was dictator of Togo from 1967 until his death in 2005, a total of thirty eight years. May the people of Togo soon be free of this dictatorial dynasty.
