Former Ghanaian Minister of Youth and Sports, Dr. Mustapha Ahmed, Dies at 63

Ghana is in mourning following the passing of Dr. Mustapha Ahmed, the former Minister of Youth and Sports. Dr. Ahmed, aged 63, passed away on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, in Accra after a prolonged battle with illness.

Dr. Ahmed’s life was marked by significant contributions as a soldier, medical practitioner, and politician. His tenure as the Minister of Youth and Sports in Ghana’s fourth republic was relatively short, spanning only eight months.

Appointed in June 2015 under the administration of President John Mahama, Dr. Ahmed succeeded Mahama Ayariga, who transitioned to lead the Ministry of Environment, Science, and Technology in January 2016.

Prior to his ministerial role, Dr. Mustapha Ahmed had a distinguished career as a Member of Parliament (MP), representing the Ayawaso East Constituency from 2001 to 2013 on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ticket.
