Ashanti NSS boss saga: GRNMA to file official complaint to police over verbal abuse
The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) is to file an official complaint over the abuse of one of its members by the Ashanti regional director of the National Service Scheme (NSS) Alex Opoku-Mensah over the issue.
Opoku-Mensah was recorded after he waded into a misunderstanding between a female nurse and a doctor identified as his daughter.
The traumatized nurse and doctor have been withdrawn to be given psychological support.
Speaking to Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Wednesday (30 November) president of GRNMA, Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo said the action of the NSS boss is disrespectful to the nursing profession.
“We are seeking charges against the verbal abuse and threat of a nurse who was on duty… this is what we are reporting to the police,” she said.
The GRNMA boss reiterated calls for the immediate dismissal of the Ashanti regional director of the National Service Scheme (NSS) over the issue.
“One man, Alex Opoku-Mensah should not hold all the 32 million and over Ghanaians to ransom. He should be sacked; he is not fit to hold that position within the public service,” Ofori-Ampofo said.
