GULF OF GUINEA COMMISSION NEEDS STRATEGY FOR ITS REVITALISATION

LUANDA, — The Gulf of Guinea Commission needs a common strategy for the member States to address the challenges faced by the organization, says its Executive Secretary, Florentina Adenike Ukonga.

She said this when addressing a meeting of experts who are preparing for the 10th ordinary session of the Council of Ministers of the commission organization. The meeting, which concludes on Thursday, will set a date for the meeting of the Council of Ministers.

Recalling that the last session of Heads of State and Governments of the GGC, held in 2013 in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, had recommended the boosting of the GGC, she noted that the same problems faced by the commission still continued to persist, hence the need to find solutions to overcome them.

The Gulf of Guinea Commission groups Angola, Nigeria, Gabon, Republic of Congo, Sao Tome and Principe, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to deal with issues of maritime security among other objectives.
