Ibrahim Tanko will take charge of the Black Meteors for their upcoming CAF U-23 Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The Black Stars assistant trainer will replace Yusif Abubakar who died early this week in Kumasi after a short illness.
His immediate task is to prepare the team for their first-round test against neighbours Togo.
The Black Meteors will host Togo on 18 December 2018 at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi and the second leg in Lomé four days later.
The winner of this tie will face Gabon in the next round.
