The Ashanti Regional Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Alex Opoku-Mensah, has, with immediate effect, been suspended.
The suspension, according to management, was communicated at an emergency meeting on Wednesday where Mr Opoku-Mensah was present.
A statement, signed by the Acting Director of Corporate Affairs, Ambrose Entsiwah Jnr, indicated the action is to allow further investigations into the viral video.
He is, therefore, expected to appear before a Committee of Inquiry set up to probe the matter on Monday, December 5, 2022.
Mr Opoku-Mensah on Sunday verbally assaulted a nurse on duty at the Manhyia Hospital for allegedly speaking rudely with a house officer who is his daughter.
He was heard in a recorded audio calling the said nurse a frustrated science student, adding that if he had the power, no General Arts student would be given the opportunity to be a nurse unless they study Science or Home Economics.
Mr Opoku-Mensah apologised for his conduct in a Facebook post two days after the incident but his conduct was widely condemned amidst calls by the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association for his dismissal.
