In November, 2008, the EFG hosted a lecture by the then Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Dr Kwadwo Afari-Gyan on The challenges of Election 2008.

Similarly, in February 2012, there was a presentation by Dr Afari-Gyan, on Election 2012, the EC’s preparations so far. Memorably, it included the first public demonstration of the Biometric Registration equipment in Ghana.

The EFG is a group of editors, senior journalists and media educators and it is affiliated to the Ghana Journalists Association.
