Limann, Hilla

Limann, Hilla, 1934-98, president of Ghana (1979-81). In 1979, after seven years of military rule, Ghana's new military leader, Jerry Rawlings, handed over power to Limann, who had been elected to head a civilian government. Limann's People's National party, which he founded, was moderately socialist but enjoyed the support of business. In 1981 he was deposed by Rawlings in a military coup.
This is a listing of the ministers who served in Limann's People's National Party government during the Third Republic of Ghana. The Third Republic was inaugurated on 24 September, 1979. It ended with the coup on 31 December, 1981, which brought the Provisional National Defence Council of Jerry Rawlings to power.
