President John Dramani Mahama has named two persons as substantive commissioners of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and Commission Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

With barely 17 days to the end of the Mahama led administration , Madam Josephine Nkrumah and Mr Joseph Whittal have been sworn in by the President to fill the vacant positions at the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and the Commission Human Right and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) at a brief ceremony at the Flagstaff House on Tuesday.

Madam Josephine Nkrumah who for over a year now has served as a deputy commissioner in charge of finance and administration at the NCCE has been elevated by the President to the position of the Commissioner while Mr Joseph Whittal has also been appointed as the commissioner of CHRAJ.

Until his appointment Mr Whittal was in charge of Legal and Investigations at the Ombudsman body.

The position of the chairperson of the NCCE had been vacant since July 2015 when the then substantive post holder, Mrs Charlotte Osei was appointed Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.

While that of CHRAJ,has been vacant since November 2015 when the then substantive  holder, Lauretta Lamptey was removed for abuse of office.

Mr Joseph Whittal and Madam Josephine Nkrumah both lawyers have worked for several years at both commissions and were on acting capacities until their elevation.
