The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has sacked its Head of Legal, Cynthia Dapaah-Ntow, following a charge of misconduct levelled against her.
the management of FDA informed its staff “that effective May 18, 2021, Mrs Cynthia Dapaah-Ntow, Head of Legal, will cease to be a staff.”
It explained that “The decision was arrived at after Mrs Cynthia Dapaah-Ntow was taken through the internal disciplinary process of the Authority, following a charge of misconduct levelled against her.”
The FDA lawyer sued Manasseh Azure Awuni and two others last year, alleging she has been defamed and is seeking to stop broadcasting the investigative piece, “The Returned Bribe”.
In the documentary, she was heard on tape demanding a bribe from COA FS manufacturer, Prof. Ato Duncan.
Following an investigation by the Authority, its Disciplinary Committee recommended to the Board that the appointment of Mrs Cynthia Dapaah-Ntow is terminated.
