Nathaniel Otoo, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority has resigned.
His resignation, according to a report by 3news.com, was approved by government sometime last week upon receipt of his resignation letter.
While it is not yet known what facilitated his decision to resign, sources close to Mr Otoo have said that he wants to 'pursue other career opportunities.'
Mr Otoo announced his resignation to the staff at the NHIA last Monday, during their bi-monthly meeting.
Mr Otoo's resignation follows a series of voluntary resignations, and dismissals of various heads of state-managed institutions, due to the change of government.
Mr Otoo, who is a lawyer by profession is leaving the scheme with a membership of 11 million, and utilization 31 million.
He was appointed as the acting Chief Executive Officer of the Scheme in 2015, after the exit of the previous CEO, Mr Sylvester Mensah, and was later confirmed as the substantive Chief Executive Officer by the Public Services Commission.
