Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Communications Network (NCN), Molly Hassan, has tendered her resignation from the post.
When contacted by INews earlier today, Hassan confirmed that she has resigned as NCN CEO and has given the requisite notice as per her contract.
Speculation has been rife that Hassan would have been asked to resign by the eight-month-old APNU/AFC government. Since the administration took office in May, a large number of persons not only in the State Media but across the spectrum of the Public Service and governmental agencies have lost their jobs – either sent on leave, forced to resign or dismissed.
And while Hassan has indicated that her resignation was voluntary, there are indications that this may be far from the truth.
There are reports also that NCN’s Human Resource Manager, Daren Khan, may be sent packing. Hassan, however, said she is not aware of this. INews will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
