ECOWAS has endorsed Ghana’s former Foreign Minister, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni as candidate for Secretary General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States.
The Ghanaian Member of Parliament is to serve the unexpired term of Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas. The United Nations and the African Union late December 2012 appointed Dr. Ibn Chambas as joint special envoy to Darfur.
Alhaji Mumuni’s nomination was tendered in by Ghana’s President John Dramani Mahama at the onging 42nd Ordinary Session of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast.
Formed in 1975, the ACP’s main objectives are sustainable development and poverty reduction within its member states, as well as their greater integration into the world’s economy.
Meanwhile, President Mahama has put a team together to assist Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten in his ongoing effort to clinch the position of Director General of the World Trade Organisation.
