A statement signed by Ebenezer Agbettor for the ARPB said the group decided to have an informal meeting with Mr Okudzeto because he was a former president of the association and had a living institutional memory of the association.
Mr Okudzeto expressed his gratitude to the group for their decision to meet him.
He stressed the importance of having an association of professional bodies in the country, adding that, the only pivot that holds a nation is her professional bodies.
He noted that as a group, the association can contribute efficiently and effectively to national development.
He assured the group that there are no legal impediments in reviving the association since all legal documents and requirements to back the association are intact.
