The University of Ghana Medical Centre has remained closed because there is a turf war between the University and the Health Ministry over the management of the facility since it was commissioned a year ago.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ministry Robert Cudjoe explained that the takeover was in the interest of the public.


However, the management of the University of Ghana has reiterated that will not hand over the newly constructed University of Ghana Teaching Hospital to the Health ministry as instructed by the government.

Meanwhile, the Minority in Parliament called on the government to back down on efforts to take control of the hospital.
