Some senior staff of the Ridge Hospital in Accra have petitioned the Ghana Health Service demanding a probe into the appointment of the new Medical Director of the facility, Dr Thomas Anaba.

In an interview with Accra-based Joy FM, an anonymous senior staff said "we the staff think that somebody somewhere has manipulated the process and the right thing must be done. In the first place they should go strictly by the appointment criteria and asking certain key people to recuse themselves from the interview process."

“There is no way my intimate friend will mark me down in an interview,” the anonymous staff added.

The aggrieved staff have therefore asked the Ghana Health Service to act with immediate effect on the matter, in order to ensure smooth running of the facility.
