On Monday, January 18, news broke about the shocking demise of National Security Coordinator, Joshua Kyeremeh at the Ga East Hospital in the Greater Accra Region.
Even though earlier reports indicated that the late National Security boss died of kidney complications, some media reports have linked his death to COVID-19.
The late Joshua Kyeremeh worked at the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) now National Investigation Bureau (NIB) for about 22 years.
He served as a Regional Commander of the BNI in the Upper East Region, where he made many good friends and assisted many needy but brilliant children to get educated and learn some trades, on the quiet.
“But for commander, my life wouldn’t be nice as you see me. I did not know him, and I can say for sure that he did not know me. One day on his way to the office, he stopped by a tree where I was sitting. He asked why I have been sitting under the tree every day. I told him I was worried and that is the only quiet place I could sit to ponder over my life. We became friends; one day he asked if I wish to further my education; I said yes and he promised to help me, which he did.” A beneficiary of the late Kyeremeh’s benevolence told A1radioonline.com.
The late National Security boss blessed many lives in Bolgatanga on the quiet and even when he was transferred from the region, he still supported until most of the beneficiaries could support themselves.
Joshua Kyeremeh also served at command level in the Ashanti Region, Northern Region, and the Greater Accra Region.
He became the head of the Investigations Unit of the then Bureau of National Investigations and later became the Deputy Director of BNI. Before he became the National Security Coordinator, Mr. Kyeremeh had become the Director of the Bureau of National Investigation and stayed in office for four years.
Mr. Kyeremeh was on the list of President Akufo Addo’s first appointees in 2017 when he assumed office for his first term as President of Ghana. He was appointed as the National Security Coordinator and ended the first them of President Akufo Addo.
