Health Ministry blames ‘miscommunication’ for Temale Hospital clashes

The Health Ministry says its inability to communicate the transfer of current Tamale Teaching Hospital CEO, Dr Prosper Akambon is to blame for the clashes that erupted between two NPP youth groups.

Two groups affiliated with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) clashed Monday over the rightful person to head the Hospital.

A youth group held a press conference to protest the announcement of Dr David Akobilla as the new CEO of the Hospital. It said one Dr Mohammed Ibrahim would have been the best person to take over from the current CEO, Dr Prosper Akambon.

NPP vigilante group, Kandahar boys who favoured another candidate, stormed the venue of the press conference and demanded it to be brought to an end.

It condemned the action of the youth group, saying it does not augur well for the image of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s nominee for the CEO position.

The youth group was angered by the presence of the Kandahar boys resulting in a confrontation, Myjoyonline.com gathered.

But the PRO of the Health Ministry, Robert Cudjoe told Joy News Tuesday Dr. David Akobilla is the rightful appointee of the President.

He said it is the fault of the Ministry that the current CEO, Dr Akambon was not served a letter announcing his transfer and subsequent handing over to the newly appointed CEO.

Dr Prosper Akambon has said he will not handover to his successor until he receives a letter to that effect.

Mr Cudjoe said though the current CEO of the hospital has received a letter about the appointment of Dr Akobilla, he is yet to have that about his transfer.

“We will send his letter to him as soon as possible and whatever the Ministry wants him to do will be clearly stated in the letter,” he said.
