I didn’t resign; I was relieved of my post – Sylvester Mensah

The former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority has clarified that he was relieved of his post and did not resign as being speculated in various sections of the media.

An internal memo leaked to the media Tuesday titled, ‘SYLVESTER MENSAH RESIGNS FROM NHIA’ confirmed that the former MP for La Dadekotopon was leaving the authority after six years in office, and will be reassigned in due course.

But in a quick response, Mr. Mensah dismissed reports that he had resigned, saying he only received letter from the Flagstaff House relieving him from his post.

‘I received a letter relieving me from my post and another [person] acting in my stead and so I sent an internal memo to all my staff across the country notifying them of the change in leadership and someone leaked it to the media with his own heading on it.

‘It is not true that [I have resigned] I have been relieved of my post and I am happy for serving in that capacity for this number of years…that is the issue not that I have resigned.

‘I served for six years and I am exceedingly grateful and thankful,’ Mr. Mensah told Kwame Sefa Kai on Peace FM Wednesday.
