The former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah says he did not resign as being speculated in various sections of the media.


An internal memo circulating on social media on Tuesday was titled, “SYLVESTER MENSAH RESIGNS FROM NHIA”.

But Mr. Mensah in an interview with Kwame Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s morning show, Kokrokoo dismissed reports that he had resigned. According to him, he received a letter from the Flagstaff House relieving him of his post.

“I received a letter relieving me of 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,” he clarified.
