Korle Bu Pharmacists Close Down

Some staff of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital are planning on ousting the already dismissed acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) from office as the pharmacy department temporarily shuts down in protest against a management directive that three local union leaders should go on a compulsory leave.

The three are Stephen Corquaye, Raymond Tetteh and Eric Kyei.

In a letter signed by Eddie Annan, a board chairman, it stated that the three must go home to pave the way for a forensic audit in their department.

The three earlier accused the former acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Rev Albert Botchwey, the board chairman and the entire management of scheming to take over the procurement of pharmaceuticals.

The pharmacists at the hospital, in solidarity with their three colleagues, locked up the department on Tuesday. They want the management to withdraw the said letter. They have also posted a notice at the hospital which called on colleague staff ‘to embrace the people’s power for the takeover on Thursday 24th July 2014.’

The former acting CEO was asked by former Health Minister, Sherry Ayittey, to handover to the Head of Medical Affairs, Dr Samuel Asiamah, but the staff claimed he has refused to comply.
