World Bank Group General Counsel to Visit Ghana

Accra- World Bank Senior Vice President and Group General Counsel, Sandie Okoro, is scheduled to arrive in Ghana on Sunday, March 18, 2018, for a four-day mission, after which she will visit Liberia.

Ms. Sandie Okoro’s mission is expected to enable her understand how World Bank financed programmes and projects were working on the ground.

It will also afford her the opportunity to learn how the Bank’s recently decentralised legal services were working and how they could better support government’s Bank’s programmes.

A statement issued by the World in Accra said Ms. Okoro would be accompanied by Chief Counsel of the World Bank’s Africa Region, Ms. Sheila Braka Musiime.

In Ghana, she will pay courtesy calls on the Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Gloria Akuffo and Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, to discuss agile strategies the Bank and government could employ in Ghana and to learn about the justice sector’s accomplishments and challenges.

Ms. Okoro will also participate in a roundtable discussion on The Political Economy [email protected]: Reflections on Democracy and Development and Gender Based Violence and Law Reforms and also visit the Climate Innovation Centre at Ashesi University, to interact with beneficiaries of the project and discuss the dividends they have reaped from the Project.
