George Andah to become the NPP's next Communications Director?

Nenyi George Andah, the former Deputy Minister of Communications, is expected to be named the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) next Communications Director, barring any last-minute changes.

The renowned corporate marketing and communications strategist brings his wealth of experience from the corporate world, both locally and internationally, with calls for him to lead the charge within the NPP.

This also comes at a time when many have argued that the party has suffered from serious communication paralysis in recent years, emphasizing the need for individuals with fresh minds and sufficient experience to take charge in order to adequately trumpet the government's policies and programs.

The administration of Stephen Ayesu Ntim is determined to revitalize the NPP's communication wing in tandem with its' agenda to break the 8'.

Previously, four people were shortlisted: Kamal-Deen Abdulai, Dennis Miracles Aboagye, Nenyi George Andah, and Richard Ahiagbah. However, the numbers were reduced further, with the strategist, commercial executive, and management consultant coming out on top.

This became necessary following broader consultations on Nenyi George Andah's ability to rekindle the spark that had previously existed in the NPP's communication wing.

Nenyi George Andah is a politician, business leader, strategist, commercial executive, and management consultant with a focus on marketing in a fast-paced environment and in the telecommunications sector.

He is enthusiastic about translating business strategy and coordination with national and regional level activity executions, media intelligence, and analytics. He has previous experience developing and implementing internal and external corporate communication and public relations activities.

He is committed to delivering results while ensuring a significant positive commercial impact, and he has a track record of leading and delivering business objectives.

He was educated at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (BSc in Biochemistry) and the University of Ghana Business School, Legon, and brings a wealth of experience gained from active work at various levels of the telecommunications industry in various capacities.

Nothing beats being part of a team with similar interests and an organization that values and respects its employees like Nenyi.

He joined Scancom Limited, a member of the MTN Group, as Chief Marketing Officer; it is noteworthy that just over a year after joining the telecommunications industry, he was voted by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (Ghana) as the Marketing Practitioner of the Year, and again awarded the best Chief Marketing Officer by the MTN Group, further endorsing his capabilities as an exceptional player in the marketing business.

He believed that the quality of leadership in Ghana was not what Ghana deserved, so he took a stand to get off the fence and into frontline politics.
