The National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) has named former National Social Security Fund (NSSF) Chief Executive Officer Anthony Omerikwa as its new CEO.
In the handover which was presided over by NACADA Board Chairperson Dr. Stephen Mairori on Wednesday, Dr. Omerikwa took over from acting CEO Prof. John Muteti who assumed office on May 15, 2023.
“The Authority has this morning welcomed the new CEO Dr. Anthony Omerikwa who has officially taken over from the immediate Acting CEO Prof. John Muteti. The ceremony was presided over by the Board Chairman Stephen Kiptoem Mairori,” a statement by the authority read in part.
“Prof. Muteti reverts to his substantive position of Director, Policy and Planning at the Authority. Karibu sana to the campaign Daktari!”
Prof. Muteti had taken over from Victor Okioma who retired from the position after serving for a term of five years.
Omerikwa earlier served as NSSF CEO for a period of 7 years. He left NSSF in November 2022, and David Mwangangi was appointed acting CEO.
