Aggrey of Africa.

I was very surprised to find my name among the "100 Greatest Africans of all time". I was even more surprised that Aggrey of Africa was not mentioned at all, which made me agree totally with your comment (NA, Aug/Sept) that in certain respects "the results are disappointing".

I would like to make two pleas. First, that my name be replaced by that of Dr James E K. Aggrey, and secondly, that you allow me to write an article for a subsequent issue of New African which could not only help your readers worldwide realise why that great man was called "Aggrey of Africa", but also make those who kindly voted for me forgive my suggestion that I be replaced by somebody else.
