African Parliamentary Press Network to hold General Meeting on Friday January 28

The first general meeting of the African Parliamentary Press Network (APPN) for the year has been scheduled to hold virtually on Friday January 28, 2022.

A notice of meeting jointly issued by the Coordinator of the APPN Secretariat in Accra Ghana, Hon. Gilbert Borketey Boyefio and Chairperson of the Steering Committee, Hon. Oluchukwu Ibekwe states that the meeting will discuss the APPN activities for the year 2022 and beyond.

The meeting is expected to discuss the concept note for the year’s activities so as to bring all members on-board to achieve APPN’s goals for the year.

Other issues for deliberation include media engagement for the forthcoming March 18, 2022 Pan African Parliament (PAP) Day which will mark eighteen years of PAP’s existence as well as Regional consultative meetings for the ratification of the Malabo Protocol and other AU legal instruments planned to be held by the PAP. The meeting will discuss how the APPN members in those regions can be involved.

All country caucuses are to ensure full participation of their members.

The African Parliamentary Press Network is a Network of African journalists and information officers reporting from regional, sub-regional and national Parliaments in Africa. APPN promotes parliamentary openness and cordial working relationship between Parliaments and the media and believes that a well mobilized and resourced press corps or galleries in all African parliaments will set the stage for the work of African Parliaments, including the Pan-African Parliament, to be made visible to the people of Africa.
