Minutes of the GUSS General Meeting
August 28th, 2011 at Kista
Grace Mahama, Diop Paul Kader, Diop Korokoussou, Enoch Ablorh, Diana Ablorh, Felix Kusi-Asare, Baba Ibrahim-Nabigahj, Ladi Suberu, Nurudeen Allotey, George Adu-Boahene, Kofi Sapathy.
The meeting, chaired by the Vice-President Mahama Mariama, started at 1645. She welcomed members back from the summer recess and informed the house that the President, Suberu Salam, was still on holidays in Ghana.
Two new members, Diop Paul Kader and and wife, Diop Korokoussou, all of Tumba, were introduced during a general introduction of all members.
George Adu-Boahene informed the meeting that Osei-Poku had become a proud grandfather which would not make it possible for him to attend the meeting to give a report on the payments issue with Micah Kissi. The matter was discussed, anyway, and George said Osei-Poku had informed him that Micah said he was given the end of August to pay the monies the executive had asked him to refund to the union. Enoch was of the opinion that since the matter was given to Osei-Poku by the executive, it is only the executive that can expect a report from Osei-Poku. The meeting chairperson, Mariama , suggested that since it was not the end of the month, we should wait until the last day of the month to see if he had paid. The matter was left there to be taken up after August 31st.
Women’s Day Celebration
It was agreed that the Women’s Day celebration be fixed on October 29th or failing that, November 5th of 2011. It was also agreed that the union will mark the day with a panel discussion on teen-aged pregnancy in Ghana and its effects on development. The panellists will be Ladi Suberu, Baba Ibrahim-Nabigah and Vida Attah. The vice president was to contact Vida on the issue. It was also agreed that the day will not be a formal party but roasted chicken, salad and bread will be provided on the occasion.
George Adu-Boahene told the meeting that the last grillfest was very successful. There was a lot to eat and people even took raw meet home that was left over. It was entirely financed by AFRIS and the union made no financial expenses. The Guineans were there to help the Ghanaians in the organisation.
The chairperson informed the meeting that the next union meeting will take place on September 25th.
There being nothing more to discuss, the meeting was brought to a close at 1755.
