KATH Labour Unions kick against CEO’s removal

Labour Unions at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti Region are kicking against a petition for the dismissal of their Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Prof. Otchere Addai-Mensah.

A private legal practitioner, Kwame Adofo accused Prof. Addai-Mensah of financial impropriety and procurement violations.

Mr Adofo, who served as KATH’s legal counsel until December 31, 2023, in a petition to President Akufo-Addo said he has substantial evidence indicating the CEO’s financial mismanagement and incompetence.

But the unions in a joint statement dismissed the allegations, describing the petition as groundless and fraught with inaccuracies.

“We recognize that the allegation against the CEO does not define his character and dedication to the well-being and development of the hospital. We witness what Professor Addai Mensah has achieved since he was appointed as CEO of KATH.

“We know his excellency, the president of the Republic, has his ears on the ground and knows the appointment of the CEO has positively impacted the hospital. We wish to put on record that we shall resist any attempt by any faceless individuals seeking to undermine the effects of the CEO because of parochial interest,” the group said.
