Dr. Bawumia fingered in TTH brouhaha

 The Coalition for the Defense of the Voiceless (CODEV) has accused the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia of attempts to ensure Dr. David Kolbila is confirmed as the Chief Executive Officer of the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH). The coalition says it is reliably informed that the Board Chairman of the hospital has advised against Dr. Kolbila’s confirmation, but the vice president is insisting he should be made the substantive CEO of the hospital.

Addressing a News Conference today, Convener of CODEV, Iddrisu Hardi Pagazaa said that TTH’s own data speaks the loudest about the deteriorating state of the hospital and wonders why Dr. Bawumia wants to impose what he describes as a master-class incompetence of a CEO on the people of the North.

He alleged that TTH is borrowing gauze, cotton, examination gloves and sutures from Central Hospital because the hospital cannot pay its suppliers due to wrong application of its Internally Generated Funds. Mr. Hardi Pagazaa also accused Dr. Kolbila of serious and grave conflict of interest as he is also actively the CEO and manager of his private facility Tizaa Royal Specialist clinic in the Tamale Metropolis.

He revealed that Dr. Kolbila consults and does both planned and emergency surgeries at his private facility which is the biggest private facility and a competitor to the TTH.
