President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has dismissed the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Youth Authority (NYA) Emmanuel Sin-nyet Asigri and his two deputies, Richard Ebbah Obeng and Bright Acheampong.

“Please ensure that you hand over and cease to act” not later than close of business on Wednesday, 4th September, 2019, the termination letter dated Tuesday, September 3, 2019, said.
The trio will hand over to the Director of Technical Projects of the Authority, Emmanuel Anaman-Mensah.
