President Appoints Acting National Security Co-ordinator

Opare Duncan

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo Tuesday asked the Deputy National Security Co-ordinator, Opare Duncan, to act as the National Security Co-ordinator pending the appointment of a substantive one.

This follows the death of the National Security Co-ordinator Joshua Kyereme on Monday.

Mr Kyeremeh, a member of President Akufo-Addo’s administrative staff at the Jubilee House, reportedly died at the Ga East Municipal Hospital where he was receiving treatment for COVID-19.

Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin, twitted Tuesday that arrangements for Mr Kyeremeh’s funeral would be announced in due course.
