Until Raphael gives us all an in-depth details of the meeting that occurred
on the 9th of April at the Barcelos, Accra Mall, I wish to give a short
In all, 7 persons attended the meeting. Myself (*blocked*
User:Nkansahrexford), Sadat (User:Masssly), Amjad, Daniel Peprah, Felix
Nartey (User:Flixtey), Raphael Berchie (User:Rberchie), and Kissiedu
Issues touched on span from probable projects and the way forward for the

We hope to have a similar meeting soon, and hopefully it'll be at a time
and place convenient for all.
