Sections of the memo read: “The Bill, with the sole object of catering adequately for the widow of the late officer until she remarries, and catering adequately for the children of the late officer, will therefore ensure that all moneys intended for the welfare and upkeep generally, and particularly the education of the infant children of the late officer, are properly administered by a Board of Trustees who have a fiduciary relationship with the beneficiaries of the Fund and the Republic of Ghana.”
