The just-resigned Board Chairman of Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital has warned President Mahama of the need to flush out a change-resistant “money-making mafia” at the 91-year-old health facility.
Mr. Eddie Annan, who tendered in his resignation on Friday, a day after President John Mahama revoked the new health minister’s re-appointment of the dismissed acting CEO, Rev Albert Okpoti Botchwey, said the President must investigate the “money-making bloc” at the 2000-bed facility, which has been wrought with a plethora of scandals within the past one month.
In his letter, Mr. Annan warned the President that: “There are financial and infrastructural challenges at Korle-Bu but your main challenge will be to dismantle what seems to be a ‘mafia’ operating at the hospital that is generating wealth to some staff and associates at Korle-Bu."
“When you talk to the average Korle-Bu worker on a calm day, he will tell you the truth, which they are all aware of money making blocs that seriously resist being dismantled.”
“If you manage to clean up Korle-Bu during your Presidency, you would have done a great service to the nation,” he said, and encouraged the President “to set your face as a flint to unravel the seeming mysteries, which are compounded by collusion from sources you least expect.”
He recommended that National Security pick up the fight from a proper perspective to help dismantle the mafia blocs in Korle-Bu.
