The Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Josephine Nkrumah has resigned from her position.

Josephine Nkrumah says she will no longer like to hold the position from April 30, 2022.

This was contained in a letter addressed to staff of the commission and sighted by citinewsroom.com.

“It has been an honor to serve Ghana through this Commission as Deputy as Deputy Chairperson (April 1, 2015 – December 19, 2016) and Chairperson (December 20,2016 to date).  I would like to thank each and everyone of you your cooperation and support during my service to the country as Chairperson, It has been an honor an a pleasure and a pleasure working with you”, parts of the letter read.

Although, the letter did not state why she was resigning, reports suggest that she was taking up a position at the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The out-going NCCE Chair happens to be one of the few appointees of the erstwhile John Mahama administration who remained in office after the Akufo-Addo government took over in 2017.

“In the next few weeks, I will furnish you with handing over notes during this time of transition”, she said.

Before her substantive appointment, Madam Josephine Nkrumah, acted in the role from her position as Deputy chairman, Finance & Administration at the commission.

That was after Ms. Charlotte Osei who was the NCCE Chair then, was appointed as Chairperson of the Electoral Commission in 2015.

Ms. Nkrumah has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Law and French from the University of Ghana, Legon.

She was called to the Ghana Bar in February 1997.

She also holds a Master’s of Law (LLM) Degree from the International Maritime Law Institute (IMO), Malta, specialising in Maritime Law.

Before joining the NCCE, she founded Law Firm, Lumens Veritals Law.

She served as a member of the Ministry of Transport’s Advisory Board and boards of other private companies.
