Former Kumasi Mayor, Osei Assibey Antwi Appointed As NSS Head

The President of Ghana, His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed the former mayor of Kumasi, Osei Assibey Antwi as the Executive Director of the National Service Scheme.

The appointment which was in a letter form was signed by the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Opare, dated September 17, 2021.

Part of the letter read “I am pleased to inform you that the President has appointed you to act as the Executive Director of the Ghana National Service Scheme (the Scheme), pending receipt of the constitutionally required advice of the governing board of the Scheme, given in consultation with the Public Services Commission".

Mr. Assibey Antwi was seen as a favorite for the KMA job until he pulled out of the race for unknown reasons as some sources say he may have been convinced to bow out of the race with a promise of another appointment.

The news of his appointment as acting head of the NSS means that he will be the successor for Mustapha Ussif, the MP for Yagaba-Kubori, who has already been appointed the Minister for Youth and Sports.
