The Director-General of the National Communications Authority (NCA), Joe Anokye, has been presented with the Humanity Magazine International Award for his excellent and transformational leadership.
The honour is in recognition of Mr. Anokye’s tireless efforts in restoring transparency and stakeholder confidence in the operations of the NCA within a short period of time.
A citation presented to the NCA boss reads, “This is in recognition of your timely intervention in restoring transparency at the NCA, which has reaffirmed stakeholder confidence. Ghana appreciates you.”
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Humanity Magazine International, Yahaya Alhassan, presenting the award at a ceremony in Accra, said that the NCA, as a vital state institution, needs to be managed by highly competent professionals.
“Indeed, Mr Anokye and his team of dedicated staff have proved to us that they can be trusted to manage the NCA for Ghanaians and we therefore appreciate their sacrifices,” he said.
Mr. Alhassan was optimistic Mr Anokye, a former telecommunication engineer at the US space agency, NASA, would ensure that telecom companies offer the best service at affordable prices to the ordinary Ghanaian.
According to him, the successes of the calm NCA boss do not come as a surprise since Anokye, which means wonders in the Akan language, will bring all his rich expertise in telecom engineering to bear on the operations of the NCA.
He said the Humanity Magazine International aims at promoting quality leadership by recognising the achievements of public and private institutions to serve as shining example for other managers.
