On Tuesday 5th March, a senior delegation led by the Minister for Regional Integration, Baltasar Engonga Edjo, accompanied by the Republic of Equatorial Guinea Ambassador to Ivory Coast, Bernardino Mba Ondo, attended in Abidjan the oath of service ceremony for the new judge and current Legal Secretary of the Organisation for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa (OHADA).
The ceremony, which took place at the headquarters of OHADA, in Abidjan, was attended by a senior delegation from Equatorial Guinea, led by Baltasar Engonga Edjo, Minister of State for Regional Integration. Taking the oath was the Equatoguinean Mariano Esono Eworo, OHADA expert for over eight years, with various responsibilities in the Equatoguinean Government. He is the second Equatoguinean to occupy the post.
According to the President of the Common Court of Justice and Arbitration (CCJA), the presence of all these players in the organisation is the result of the direct involvement in policies in bringing about strong ambitions for the people, and more specifically the living expression of the commitment of the Equatoguinean Government towards African integration. The new judge Mariano Eworo Ncogo will be at the heart of the organisation for a period of seven years.
OHADA has 17 member States, and its headquarters has been in the Republic of Ivory Coast since the creation of the organisation in 1993.
