Regional Security Council Reopens Ousted TTH CEO’s Office

The Northern Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has reopened the locked office of the acting CEO, Dr David Kolbila, of the Tamale Teaching Hospital which on Monday was forcefully shuttered alleged by a political vigilante group.

Mr. Salifu Saeed, the northern regional minister on Tuesday morning led the REGSEC to reinstate Dr David Kolbila.

Security has been beefed up in and around the facility. A vigilante group affiliated to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) ousted Dr Kolbila from his office over several allegations of mismanagement, conflict of interest and conniving with the procurement officer to procure items.

Dr Kolbila’s forceful “dismissal” drew severe condemnations from Ghanaians with some calling for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators.

The minister told management including the TTH CEO that the government did not sanction the action of the youth and disassociated the government from it.

Mr Saeed went on to explain that the leadership of the NPP did not also sanction the youth’s behavior and advised the aggrieved youth to list their concerns and channel them to the leadership of the party for redress.   

Dr Kolbila requested a permanent police post at the hospital to ensure constant police surveillance. He told the REGSEC that the facility is a major security zone and security there cannot be taken lightly, adding that the hospital is a human institution and anything that could jeopardize sick people at the facility need serious attention.

Meanwhile, the police are yet to make any arrest in connection with yesterday’s incident.

The youth who locked up the office went away with the keys. The question many are still asking is: who gave the keys to Dr Kolbila’s office to the REGSEC?
