Dr Antoinette Tsiboe-Darko, a research fellow and lecturer at the University of Ghana has replaced Mr Richard Ahiagbah as the new Executive Director of the Danquah Institute.
Dr Tsiboe-Darko’s appointment by the Governing Board of the Danquah Institute makes her the first woman to lead the think tank.
Her mandate is to lead the institute by promoting the ideology of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition, fostering responsible and responsive governance, and espousing the virtues of economic freedom, individual liberties and responsibilities in a progressive society of opportunities for all.
She will also be expected to undertake important research, policy advocacy, and training and to position the institute firmly in the promotion of a single market in Africa.
“It is a collaboration between party and think tank which we hope to firm up under Annie’s leadership,” said Prof Mike Oquaye, the chairman of the Governing Board of DI. Dr Tsiboe-Darko lectures in Social and Public Policy at the graduate level at the University of Ghana.
She is a Christian and is married with four children. She loves to write, read, dance and listen to music.
“I’m excited by Annie’s appointment. She is a fantastic researcher, communicator and, even more importantly for me, she is determined to help guide the youth from following political parties for direct material gain to one of ideological loyalty, a loyalty based on principles and shared beliefs on how our society must be governed and function,” says Madam Elizabeth Ohene, a member of the Governing Board.
