Alex Opoku-Mensah, the director of the National Service Scheme in the Ashanti Region, has apologized after becoming involved in a confrontation with a nurse at the Manhyia Hospital.
This comes after a viral audio clip of the NSS director angrily abusing a nursing employee at the Manhyia District Hospital.
The incident’s audio recording captures Mr. Alex Opoku-Mensah verbally abusing the nurse for reportedly threatening his daughter, a hospital house officer.
But Alex Opoku-Mensah said in a Facebook post apologies that what transpired was not how he operated.
“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,” he wrote.
He described what happened as a ‘mishap’ and asked for forgiveness.
“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,” he added.
