GIADEC’s Kojo Yankah goes home

He will be laid in state at the Lashibi Funeral Home to provide an opportunity for family, friends and colleagues to pay their last respects

Final funeral rites for the former acting director of communications at the Ghana Integrated Aluminium Development Corporation (GIADEC), Kojo Yankah, will take place on Friday 23 February at the Lashibi Funeral Home in Accra.

He will be laid in state at 8am at the Lashibi Funeral Home to provide an opportunity for family, friends, colleagues and the public to pay their last respects.

Following the lying in state, a burial service will be conducted from 9am to bid farewell to the late communications expert.

A thanksgiving service will take place on Sunday (25 February 2024) at the Empowerment Worship Centre (Prayer Factory) in Dzorwulu, Accra at 9am to give mourners an opportunity to come together in prayer and reflection.

Kojo played a crucial role in the success and growth of GIADEC. He was passionate about building Ghana’s Integrated Aluminium Industry (IAI) and had great faith in the corporation as the vehicle set up to deliver the IAI.

He was instrumental in the launch of GIADEC’s four projects of the IAI and the announcement of the strategic investor for Project 2 in September 2021. He was also actively involved in the planning and execution of the recently held signing ceremony for Project 3A on 26 January 2024, where Mytilineos SA was announced as GIADEC’s strategic partner for the project.

Kojo further supported VALCO’s consultants to develop and execute a communications strategy for the investor engagement process for the VALCO modernisation project.

His contribution included the preparation of a communication plan for the cabinet memo, the engagement of key media personalities and academicians and the development of documentaries for publication in the media.

Kojo built a strong partnership between GIADEC and both the Ghanaian and international media. He went further to establish the GIADEC press corps, a group that he cherished and bonded closely with.

His passion, patriotism and commitment to his family, colleagues and members of the media will be remembered.

Kojo is survived by his wife, Shemaat, and three children. We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Robert Kojo Yankah at this difficult time. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
