The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and the Ghana Police Service are investigating suspected ghost bank accounts at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Management of the hospital claim a cartel have created the ghost bank accounts to loot the hospital.
Board Chairman of the hospital, Edward Annan, revealed to Joy News more than 200 ghost names were discovered after a head count of staff.
He says the BNI and police were called because management suspects more of such cliques are still receiving salaries from the hospital even though they do not work there.
‘I think the Accountant General’s department has also been given a report on the names. I think some of the them [ghost names] have been taken out but we are still looking for more’, he said.
Board and Management of Ghana’s premium hospital made the news recently when senior staff accused them of mismanagement of funds meant for the hospital’s infrastructural improvement.
The Senior Staff Association of the hospital has followed their allegations with a petition to President John Mahama.
They say the management of the hospital is misapplying the Internally Generated Funds to buy VW Passats.
However, the Health Ministry has rebuffed the allegations.
PRO of the Ministry, Tony Goodman, has explained that the Ministry provided the cars under a hire-purchase agreement which is available to any staff or institution under the ministry.
