ACEPA Attends the Speaker’s Breakfast Forum.

The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin organized the “Speaker’s Breakfast Forum” in collaboration with STAR Ghana Foundation to celebrate their 5th anniversary. At the event, our Executive Director, Dr. Rasheed Draman who was also the distinguished guest speaker, shared insightful perspectives on the involvement of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the work of the Parliament of Ghana.

He emphasized the paramount significance of a Democracy, underscoring the fact that the effectiveness and efficiency of democracies hinge upon openness and well-structured avenues for constructive engagement.

Speaking further, he explained that the purpose of the gathering was to celebrate two important milestones – thirty years of uninterrupted parliamentary democracy under the Fourth Republican Constitution and STAR Ghana Foundation’s 5th anniversary. Given the alignment of the core missions of these two important institutions – the pursuit of the well-being and interest of the citizens of this country, there is no better moment to reflect on how our representative institution has engaged the very people it is supposed to represent.

The forum theme: “Thirty Years of Parliamentary Democracy Under the Fourth Republic: Reflections on Citizens Engagement and the Way Forward” was thus appropriate and timely.
