APRM COMMISSION OF MALI VISITS GHANA’S GOVERNING COUNCIL AND INTERACTS WITH GOMOA WEST DISTRICT APRM OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

A five-member delegation from the APRM Commission of Mali has paid a two-day working visit to Ghana’s APRM Governing Council in Accra. Ambassador Alex Ntim Abankwa, welcomed the delegation on behalf of the chairman, Rev. Prof S.K. Adjepong, and the Governing Council.

The delegation was led by Mr. Ousmane Diallo, President of the APRM Commission of Mali. Also present were the Vice President Madame Ossada Fatima Traore, Mr. Sekou Traore, Madame Krotumu Nyang, Mr. Daouda Konney and Mrs Elma Frank of the Hann Seidel Foundation. Ambassador Abankwa briefed the delegation on Ghana’s journey through her accession to the APRM in 2003 and her peer review in January 2006.

He explained the criteria used for the selection of the seven-member Council. He added that the independence, professionalism, objectivity and their ability to reach across all stakeholders ensured the credibility of the process.

He explained the rationale behind the establishment of the District Oversight Committees in all 170 districts of the country. He indicated that this was in line with the decentralization process and also to improve ownership and participation of ordinary citizens in the APRM process. This, he added, is helping to empower grassroots participants to play a lead role in the governance process.

Presedent E. J. A. Mills President, John Evans Atta Mills announced to the Forum of Heads of State and Government of the Implementing Committee (HSGIC) at the just ended 14th Summit of the African Peer Review (APR Forum) that Ghana was ready for a second review. He said this at the APRM meeting held at the margins of the Sixteenth Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Saturday, January 29, 2011.

The Forum reviewed the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia as the fourteenth country to complete the review process. Ethiopia’s Country Review Report commended the country for being one of the fastest-growing non-oil economies in the world. It also indicated that though Ethiopia does not have a stock exchange, it has a Commodity Exchange in line with the Arusha Declaration and Plan of Action on African Commodities of 2005.

The report also praised Ethiopia’s pro-poor spending pattern which ensures that over 90 percent of the Government’s capital budget is allocated to enhancing pro-poor growth and social sectors such as agriculture, rural development and food security, roads, irrigation, water supply and sanitation, education, health and HIV/AIDS.
