‘What do you mean by that?’’
The Glago is a very influential man. His status approaches that of the Asantehene here. He rules over a vast area with considerable gold and phosphate deposits, including the present location of the BHP mine. He is well educated, and he takes great interest in the welfare of his people.
He provides them with free education and health care, among other things. I’m not surprised he wants to reward you for helping his people in Ghana. He gets a lot of money in the form of royalties, and in addition to that French and American governments and companies are always giving him gifts because of his decency. I’m sure you will come back with a very handsome gift, although from what I hear now, you don’t really need it.
