The youthful trio of Mustapha Ussif, Gifty Oware – Aboagye and Henry Nana Boakye has been confirmed by His Excellency the President, Nana Akufo Addo as directors of the Ghana National Service Scheme effective February 6, 2017.
The 37-year-old Hon. Mustapha Ussif who represented the people of Yagaba/Kubori in parliament from 2009 to 2017 is seen by many as one of the rising stars of the party from the Northern part of Ghana, has been confirmed by the president as Executive Director of the National Service Scheme. He holds a degree in International Business Management from the Anglia Ruskin University in the UK, an MBA in Finance with distinction from the University of Gloucestershire UK and an executive programme in Management Development from the University of Wales.
Dr. Gifty Oware Aboagye, another active member of the party’s youth wing has also been confirmed as Deputy Executive Director of the scheme in charge of Finance and Administration. She has also held key positions within the party’s youth wing and played various roles in the 2012 and 2016 elections. Up until now, she is the head of Research at Danquah institute and also head of media monitoring for NPP campaign 2016. She has for years been one of the few female communicators of the party. She is known to the party’s youth as a hardworking and fearless woman in a game dominated and manipulated by men. With impeccable academic records, she is expected to bring her expertise to bare in reviving the scheme.
Arguably the fastest rising star among the party’s youth, Henry Nana Boakye known by his nom de guerre- Nana B, is currently a household name due to his daily contributions to national political discourse on both radio and television.
The youthful trio have been assigned the responsibility of bringing stability to the National Service Scheme which has been rocked with scandals recently. They are highly tipped to bring much needed reforms to the scheme.
