The Ashanti Regional Director of the National Service Scheme, Alex Opoku-Mensah, has been suspended for two months without pay.
This follows his involvement in misconduct with a nurse at the Manhyia District Hospital.
In November 2022, Mr. Opoku-Mensah verbally assaulted the nurse and a committee was set up by the Scheme to investigate the issue. On December 1, 2022, the Secretariat of the Scheme temporarily suspended the Ashanti Regional Director to probe into the matter.
However, a new directive from the Scheme indicates that Mr. Opoku-Mensah has been suspended with immediate effect for two months without pay.
Mr. Opoku-Mensah has also been ordered to apologise to the National Service Scheme within seven days for bringing the institution’s name into disrepute.
