Josephine Nkrumah, the Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education, has stepped down (NCCE).
Ms. Nkrumah, who has held the position for six years after previously serving as deputy Chair, stated this in a letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo dated today.
“Please accept my heartfelt compliments as I advise you of my resignation as chairperson of this committee effective April 30, 2022,” the letter said in part.
“It has been an honor to serve as Deputy Chairperson and Chairperson of this commission,” she continued.
During the transition period, she also stated that all turning over notes will be provided in a timely manner.
Her resignation will take effect on April 30, 2022.
The outgoing NCCE Chair has said she has been given the position of Special Representative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Liberia, which she would accept soon.
According to a StarrFM report, President Akufo-Addo congratulated her and said it was historic news as he accepted her letter of resignation.
He also praised her expertise and work during her time as NCCE Chair, while expressing enthusiasm for her new position.
“We’ve been together for the last five years, and we’ve seen the quality of the work you’ve done,” President Akufo-Addo said. “I have no doubt that this is a task you’ll complete to bring honor to yourself and to us, your country Ghana,” he added.
“So I guess I’ll just wish you the best of luck,” he continued.
