The Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu has admonished the Chief Executive Officer of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH), saying he did not inform him before terminating a revenue collection contract with unibank.

He said the abrogation of the contract was against good corporate governance.

But uniBank in a statement said the hospital’s statement succeeded in creating more distortions than it sought to correct.

Mr Agyemang-Manu in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM said he heard about the matter after the hospital had terminated the contract.

He noted: "After Dr Anyah’s appointment, I told him I was in consultation with the president to get the board for the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital but told him since the facility cannot be allowed to sit down without working, if there is any major decision concerning the running of the hospital, he should consult me."

He said "upon hearing that he [CEO] has terminated the Unibank contract, I called him … I was very, very much not comfortable with the fact that he was doing that thing on the blind side of a minister, who is the authority to have actually discussed the matter."
