Tsatsu Tsikata, a lawyer and former CEO of GNPC, has been celebrated by his people at Srogboe in Keta in the Volta Region, the GBC has reported.
The chiefs and people of the community held a durbar in honour of Tsikata for what they said was his contribution to national development as well as his contribution to the development of the community.
The durbar was also to celebrate his freedom after he was jailed by an Accra high court for allegedly causing financial loss to the state.
The event, which was characterised by pomp and pageantry, was attended by many people in the community as well as others from neighbouring communities such as Alakpe, Fiaxor, Xenui and Whuti.
Clothed in all-white attire and flanked by his wife, Tsika expressed gratitude to God for saving his life when he fell sick while serving time at the Nsawam Prison.
He said but for divine grace, he would have died one night when he suffered an asthma attack in prison and had to be sent the 37 Military Hospital in Accra for care.
For his part, Torgbi Tsikata Agbodzie II, the chief of Srogboe, described Tsikata's incarceration at Nsawam as unfortunate.
He said the lawyer had been wrongfully imprisoned and thanked those he said had contributed to getting him out.
