Korle Bu CEO was incompetent – Staff

The Senior Staff Association of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital say they are very pleased with government’s order for the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital to step down because he was a non-performer.

The Ministry of Health in a statement ordered Reverend Albert Botchway to step down and revert to his position on the hospital’s board.

Rev. Botchway and the board chairman, Eddie Annan have come under intense pressure from the senior staff association for allegedly mismanaging hospital funds and spending more than GHC 1 million on luxury vehicles.

The association petitioned the President, John Mahama to intervene in the matter by dissolving the hospital board.

The Health Ministry subsequently ordered the board to return the vehicles or personally pay the cost.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, the President of the association, Charles Nii Kwadey Offei Palm said they are satisfied with the directive, but the board should have been dissolved as well.

“We are also not happy at the same time because we think the directive could have gone further to dissolve the board,” he remarked.

According to him, although the statement from the Health Ministry did not assign any reason for the directive given, he is convinced Rev. Botchway was dismissed because of their appeals to the president.

He stated that “it will be suicidal for any person in government or any institution to have allowed Opkoti to continue to act as the CEO.”

Mr. Offei Palm alleged that Rev. Botchway’s appointment as the acting CEO of the hospital was illegal based on the Act 525 which establishes the teaching hospital.

He disclosed that the members of the association were planning a massive demonstration against the management of the hospital “and we think that must have also contributed for his push…he is a non-performer.”
