Chief Executive Officer of Accra-based Citi FM, Samuel Atta-Mensah has resigned as CEO of the Coastal Development Authority.

According to report, CITI FM's CEO, Samuel Atta-Mensah resigned based on his principle which is in a sharp contrast with the attitude of the Minister for Special development initiative, Mavis Hawa Koomson.

Meanwhile, sources have disclosed that the Minister, Mavis Hawa Koomson has gone ahead to appoint her confidant, one Emmanuel Afram as a replacement for the CITI FM's CEO.

President Akufo-Addo, in April 2018 appointed CITI FM's CEO, Samuel Atta-Mensah as the head of the Coastal Development Authority.

His appointment was “in accordance with applicable laws,” a statement from the presidency announced Friday, April 13.

He will be aided by four deputies and they are Jerry Ahmed Shaib, Bob-Charles Agbontor, Mona Gertrude Effah and Emmanuel Affram Anim.

The three Development Authorities are tasked with the implementation of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP) – the Programme which will ensure the disbursement of the equivalent of $1 million per constituency per year, in fulfilment of President Akufo-Addo’s 2016 campaign pledge.

The project is also expected to have a direct link with the government’s one district one factory project, which is estimated to cost GH¢456.3 million and create about 350,000 jobs.
