At a news conference in Tamale, Chairman of the group, Bashiru Baba said the hospital is currently facing challenges with corruption, nepotism, and abuse of human rights of workers.

He said: “The CEO, Dr. Prosper Akambong, Misbaw Mohammed and Hamid Abdulai notoriously known as the “Trinity”, are virtually running the day to day activities of the hospital.

“We are giving the CEO and his two colleagues a- week’s ultimatum to step down, failure to do so, we will advise ourselves.”

He said under the watch of the CEO and the others earlier mentioned, there is a shortage of essential medicines and consumables, as some workers do not also get their salaries on time.

“Patients are asked to purchase very basic items such as hand gloves, syringes and all items needed for their care, which are supposed to be catered for by the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).”

“Another interesting occurrence is the maltreatment of persons by the Trinity. It is said that appointment to the hospital has taken a partisan dimension. Qualified persons perceived to be coming from a certain political party are denied appointment. Temporal staff also perceived to be members of that same political lineage are denied permanent status”, he added.

Bashiru Baba has, therefore, urged for a forensic audit of the hospital’s accounts and the establishment of a bipartisan committee, to probe the allegations being made against the current CEO and his two other colleagues.
