Pius Enam Hadzide

President Nana Akufo-Addo has appointed a former Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide Pius Hadzide as the Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Authority (NYA).

Mr Hadzide takes over from Sylvester Tetteh, who is now the Member of Parliament for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro.

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.

NYA also drives political development using appropriate technology and highly motivated professionals.
