Welcome to The Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL)

07:30am – 17:30pmMonday To Friday


House No. 28, Naa Shika Lane Haasto


A coalition of civil society organizations on Thursday urged government to ensure that the Petroleum Exploration and Production Bill and Marine Pollution Bill, which are before Parliament, are revised for the good of the nation.

According to the coalition although the current Bill is an improvement upon PNDC Law 84, as it encourages open tender in the award of petroleum contracts, the portion which arrogates power to the sector Minister to single handedly award contacts in some instance without giving reasons is a recipe for corruption in the near future.

The coalition members include the Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL), Friends of the Nation (FoN) and the Western Region branch of the Ghana National Canoe and Fishermen?s Council.

The Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) held a forum last Friday in Accra for its Ghanaian partners to engage them on the various developmental projects that they have embarked upon and the ones which they are currently handling.

The aim of the forum, according to the Law, Justice, and Human Rights Programme Manager of OSIWA, Ms. Afia Asantewaa Asare-Kyei, was to create an opportunity for the partners to have a direct encounter with the OSIWA representatives, and to deliberate on issues concerning their projects in Ghana.

The forum was also to enlighten the OSIWA representatives on the shortcomings (if there were any) of the projects undertaken by their partners, and to find solutions to them.
