Mr. Ocquaye

The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Aaron Ocquaye, has led a seven-member delegation to the Moroccan city of Rabat for a three-day visit to the country’s House of Representatives.


While there, the Speaker would hold talks with high profile officials of the Moroccan government, including the President of the Rabat Senate as well as various sector ministers.


The visit is at the invitation of the President of the House of Representatives, Monsieur Habib El Malki. The talks are expected to centre on bilateral relations between Ghana and Morocco.

Ghana and Morocco have a long-standing history of friendship and cooperation which dates back to the immediate post-independence era of the 1960s.

There was, however, a brief lull in this relationship during the 1970s.

Cooperation between the two countries was restored in 2001 and since then, they have built very good relations with exchange of business and political ideas at the ministerial and higher levels of governance.


The Speaker was accompanied by Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, Member of Parliament for Mpraeso, Seth Acheampong, and some members of the parliamentary service.

A former Speaker of Parliament Ebenezer Begyina Sekyi Hughes led a delegation on a similar visit to Morocco in 2005.
