It is a confusing trail but it appears that the UDD party was abolished by Maga before Soglo took over (Coup). It also appears that Ahomadegbe-Tometin was only really president after 1970 when his party had already been abolished.
The medal in question seems (stongly) to be Dahomey but which president and whether of the country or merely party, I cannot tell. But check out the history of the 1960’s and 1970’s in Dahomey/Benin for a real, political soap opera.

In conclusion I would guess it is more likely under Ahomadegbé-Tomêtin (1st choice) or Maga (2nd choice)
