Kofi Nketsia-Tabiri

Friday 13 June 1975 - Monday 17 July 2023

Founded in 2010, XpressGas Ghana Limited (XpressGas) provides liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to households, institutions, and businesses. A Ghanaian-owned company, XpressGas aims to make LPG available, accessible, and affordable, and thus a better alternative to the solid fuel that 75 percent of Ghanaians rely on. In 2021, XpressGas successfully raised USD $6 million in equity and debt from the impact investing group Investisseurs & Partenaires and the Belgian Investment Company for Developing Countries to increase LPG penetration and access.

KOFI NKETSIA-TABIRI was born on Friday 13 June 1975. He was christened Ebenezer Emmanuel but he was widely known as Kofi Nketsia-Tabiri. His parents were Joseph Kwesi Tabiri and Margaret Ekua Ampewah Biney, both deceased.

Kofi’s education took him to the GAEC Preparatory School, St. Martin’s SHS, Adoagyiri, Nsawam, Presbyterian SHS, Legon, KNUST and Durham University. He obtained degrees in BSc (Mechanical Engineering) and MSc (International and Corporate Finance).

Kofi worked with KITE, E+Co and offered consulting services to several local and international institutions.

Kofi founded XpressGas Ltd in 2010. He was the first CEO of XpressGas Ltd and devoted most of his life in building and expanding the company to become one of the leading distributors of LPG in Ghana, until his demise.

Kofi is survived by his wife Mrs. Dzigbodi Nketsia-Tabiri; and his children, Reuben Nketsia-Tabiri, Abigail Nketsia-Tabiri, Elsie Nketsia-Tabiri and Emmanuelle Nketsia-Tabiri

Kofi will be sorely missed by his entire family, friends and business partners
