The chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Josephine Nkrumah, has tendered in her resignation letter to President Akufo-Addo to take up a new role at the international level.

Her resignation takes effect 30 April 2022.

Presenting her letter of resignation to the President at the Jubilee House on Monday (21 February), Nkrumah noted that she has accepted to be the special representative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Liberia.

“As we speak, I just offered my letter of acceptance to ECOWAS to be the ECOWAS ambassador to Liberia with the duty post in Monrovia,” she said.

“As the father of the land and the appointing authority, I deem it necessary to come and see you and officially tender in my resignation which will take effort on 30 April,” Nkrumah added.

President Akufo-Addo in accepting her letter of resignation congratulated her, indicating that it is a momentous news.

He expressed great confidence in the ability of the outgoing NCCE boss to function effectively in her new role having regard to her sterling performance during her five-year stay at the NCCE.

“We have been together here for the last five years and we have seen the quality of the work you have done. I have no doubt that this is a job you are going to do to bring credit to yourself and to us, your country Ghana,” Akufo-Addo said, adding: “So I have to wish you the very best of lack.”

The outgoing NCCE boss was appointed and sworn into office by President John Dramani Mahama on 20 December 2016.

Prior to her promotion, she was a deputy chairperson of the NCCE in charge of Finance and Administration.
The position became vacant after the then chair of NCCE Charlotte Osei was appointed the chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

Her appointment at the time was her second promotion in less than 19 months. Nkrumah holds a BA (Law & French) from the University of Ghana.
