Daniel Owusu-Koranteng, General Secretary of the Maritime and Dockworkers Union, has been elected President of the Ghana National Association of ADR Practitioners (GNAAP).
Mr Owusu-Koranteng, a distinguished unionist, development advocate and civil society leader, was elected at GNAAP’s 6th Annual General Conference in Accra on Saturday.
He takes over from Mr Robert Sarfo Mensah, former Director-General of the National Sports Authority.
Tasked to lead the rejuvenation of the association, Mr Owusu-Koranteng was elected over his only contender, Mr Wogbe Atta Dogoe, General Secretary of GNAAP, who now becomes the Vice President in accordance with the electoral rules.
Other elected executives are Mr Mark Anderson, General Secretary and Madam Anastasia Asamoah-Gyimah, Deputy General Secretary.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Owusu-Koranteng promised to offer innovative and quality leadership in advancing the vision and mission of the association.
He also pledged to pursue his campaign promise of getting members, especially in the regions to be more active and support in opening up regional branches of the association.
The association was established in 2014, and currently has over 400 members from diverse backgrounds.
The 6th Annual General Conference, which was preceded by a mediation outreach at Pokuase to propagate ADR and help disputants to settle cases, had the theme, “The place of Alternative Dispute Resolution in contemporary Ghana.”
