Kathleen Addy appointed as acting NCCE Chairperson
President Akufo-Addo has appointed Kathleen Addy as the acting chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE).
The confirmation of Kathleen Addy’s appointment is subject to the advice of the Council of State to the president, in line with Article 232 (2) of the 1992 constitution, which states that “members of the Commission shall be appointed by the president acting on the advice of the Council of State”.
Josephine Nkrumah stepped down from the NCCE to take up a new role as the special representative of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Liberia.
Kathleen Addy was first appointed to the NCCE in 2017 as Deputy Chairperson in charge of Finance and Administration. She is a communication professional with over 20 years’ experience and also an activist with specific interest in women’s empowerment and good governance.
Her professional experience before joining the NCCE includes stints with CDD-Ghana, the Afrobarometer Project and the Centre for Policy Analysis. She holds an MA in Communication Studies and a BA in Arts (Psychology Major) both from the University of Ghana.
Madam Addy attended Achimota School for her GCE O-Level certificate and Holy Child College for her GCE A-Level certificate.
