Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas
The Joint Special Representative of the United Nations and the African Union in Darfur, Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas, has charged President Mahama to ‘run a lean and performing government.’
According to Dr. Chambas, the request by 200 Ghanaians for asylum in Brazil though ‘unfounded, frivolous and regrettable,’ was an indication of the ‘precarious state of the national economy at the moment.’
He called on the President Mahama to learn from the ‘tested blueprint of success’ of his predecessor, the late President John Evans Atta Mills.
Dr. Chambas, speaking at a memorial lecture to commemorate the 2 nd anniversary of the passing of President John Mills, also advised the Regional body the Ecomonic community of West African States (ECOWAS), of which President Mahama is Chairman, to address concerns raised by civil society groups on the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA).
He said, ‘we need to address those supply-side constraints, poor infrastructure, lack of energy, high cost of transportation, of shipment, the usually cumbersome procedures on the EU side that needs to be simplified these are serious issues that need to be addressed so that we can truly take advantage of the huge European market that is offered under the EPA.’
