In a Facebook post Mr. Opoku-Mensah said “I understand the disappointment and appreciate the inconvenience my action has caused the general public as well as the Nursing FRATERNITY and Manhyia Hospital.
“This has never been my style but for a genuine reason to mediate a persistent issue between my daughter(Doctor) and a colleague nurse who I as well consider my daughter.
“I do apologize for any mishap and assure all, there shall not be a repetition of such. I look forward to maintaining a cordial relationship between any affected person.”
His apology comes after the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) issued a 72-hour ultimatum for his immediate dismissal.
The livid nurses threatened to withdraw their services at the Manhyia District Hospital if he was not sacked.
This was on the heels of an audio recording emanated from Manhyia District Hospital in the Ashanti Region in which a male voice purported to be that of Ashanti Region NSS director is heard raining insults on a nurse.
