ACP inaugurates the Eminent Persons Group

In an extraordinary session held in Brussels on 25 – 26 of March, the ACP Council of Ministers has inaugurated the Eminent Persons Group EPG whose mission will be to provide guidance and concrete recommendations for the future of the ACP Group. The Council of Ministers has also designated Hon. Alhaji Muhammad MUMUNI as Secretary-General of the ACP as from April 1st, 2013 in replacement of Dr Mohamed Ibn CHAMBAS who was recently nominated by the United Nations and the African Union as their Special Envoy for Darfur.
The decision to set up an Eminent Persons Group was taken by the last Summit of ACP Heads of States (Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, December 2012).  Independent of their member states, regions or any other party, the Eminent Persons mandate extends 31st December 2014. The 14 members of the group who met in Brussels have designated the former Nigerian President, Chief Olusegun OBASANJO, as their Chairperson.
At the event, the incoming Secretary General, Hon. Muhammad MUMUNI has underlines his priorities for his next period in office: the negotiations of the EPA’s, the Intra-ACP cooperation, South-South and Triangular cooperation “and more importantly,  sustaining existing partnerships, while charting new frontiers of cooperation.”
