- Sammens reportedly cited differences in contract directives with the sector minister
According to multiple sources YEN.com.gh has monitored, Samuel Attah Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Coastal Development Authority has decided to resign from his position due to certain differences he reportedly has with the sector minister.
The sector minister who is in charge of Special Development Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, is said to have seriously different opinions from Mensah on contract directives. Mensah deemed these differences as irreconcilable.
It is expected that one Mensah's four deputies would take over from him. They are Jerry Shaibu, Bob-Charles Agbontor, Emmanuel Affram Anim and Gertrude Mona Effah.
Samuel Attah Mensah is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Accra-based Citi FM. He was appointed to the Coastal Development Authority earlier this year.
The Authority was supposed to compliment the efforts of the government in laser-focusing development into the areas that needed them.
The Coastal Development Authority was the partner development body to the Northern and Middle Belt Development Authorities.
They were tasked with the responsibility to implement the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).
Attah Mensah, also known as Sammens, has been a vocal critique of governments often coming off as one who would not stand for corruption and mismanagement.
