Mr Hadzide takes over from Sylvester Tetteh, who is now the Member of Parliament for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro.
The appointee is expected to bring on board his experience and expertise as a youth worker and mobiliser for the smooth and effective running of the authority.
Mr Hadzide in 2017 was appointed a Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports in President Akufo-Addo’s first term.
He was, however, transferred to the Information Ministry.
The NYA as a Statutory Institution of Reference in Youth Development Service seeks to provide an environment for youth participation.
