The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, has finally unlocked the office of the Tamale Teaching Hospital Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Dr. Prosper Akambong’s office has for the past one week been under lock and key by a vigilante group affiliated to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kandahar Boys.
The Kandahar Boys’ action followed other pressure group’s call for Dr. Prosper Akambong’s removal from office.
This happened when Salifu Saeed was not inducted into office as regional Minister. The regional Minister on Tuesday February 28, 2017, visited the Tamale Teaching Hospital and unlocked the CEO’s office.
He condemned the nationwide post election violence, and impressed upon members of pressure groups in the region to use the appropriate administrative structures to address their grievances.
He unequivocally served notice that the Nana Addo-Bawumia led NPP administration will not tolerate lawlessness. Salifu Saeed assured the hospital management of cordial relations to improve efficiency at the major health referral facility.
Dr. Prosper Akambong thanked the regional Minister for his intervention. He dispelled allegations of corruption, nepotism and selective justice leveled against him, and assured government of competent leadership.
