Aryeh Substitutes Agbozo At NSC
Another era in Ghana's sports administration has ended with the replacement of Mr Albert Agbozo by Mr Charles James Aryeh as the acting Chief Executive of the National Sports Council (NSC).
From last Wednesday till a substantive Chief Executive steps in, Mr Aryeh will preside over and supervise a new direction for Ghana sports in the latest of many roles he has played in the sector.
The move ends Mr Agbozo's days at the Sports Council and ushers in his leave prior to retirement in two years time.
Over the years that he worked with the Sports Council, Mr Agbozo rose through the ranks and became the Head of Administration from where he moved to the acting post of Chief Executive.
“I come with my humble self, ready to serve Ghana in any capacity,” Mr Aryeh told the Graphic Sports moments after taking office.
But more importantly, the change brings him closer to his area of specialisation as opposed to other duties that had carried him around the country.
Despite holding a Teacher's Certificate A, a Diploma in Public Relations, and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Public Administration from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Mr Aryeh has been shuffled between technical jobs such as Ashanti Regional Sports Organiser in 1992, and the Eastern Regional Sports Development Officer, a position he held from December 2003 till his latest appointment.
In a few other times in the 17 years he has been with the Sports Council, he was Deputy General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association between 1993 and 1998, Senior Administrative Officer at the NSC, Head of Administration in Ashanti Region and acted as Head of Administration at the Winneba Sports College.
It is uncertain exactly when Mr Aryeh's temporary reign will end, but his assumption of office last Wednesday, three days before his 55th birthday anniversary, offers his a unique present.
