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.
