Kojo Yankah

Kojo Yankah was a Ghanaina business executive who died on December 16, 2023. He was the Head of the office of the chief executive officer of the Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC).

Yankah obtained his Bachelor of Arts (BA), degree in Political Science and Government from the University of Ghana in 2001, and in 2009, he was awarded a Master of Science degree in Public Policy from Queen Mary University of London.

He has worked at GIADEC since 2018 until his untimely death. In the course of his work at GIADEC, he has spearheaded the company’s efforts aimed at building stakeholder consensus ahead of Ghana’s bauxite exploration and value addition.

As a result of this, he has built very strong relations with the media, and civil society organizations (CSOs), among others on behalf of GIADEC as the organization strives to build an integrated aluminum industry in Ghana.

Kojo Yankah’s last post on his Facebook Wall was on Saturday, December 9, 2023. In the post, he shared his workout video and a picture of his family where he wrote the following; “Inside Out!!” against the workout post and “Elohim is our help!!” above the family photo.

However, on Thursday, 7 December 2023, he posted this thought-provoking piece; “We have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one”. In other words, suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary, then it becomes optional. Selah!!”
