- Dr Felix Anyaah has denied media reports that he was fired as Korle-Bu MD by Akufo-Addo
- The Medical practitioner says he was only relieved of his post due to his retirement age
The immediate past Acting Director of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr Felix Anyaah, has disclosed that he wasn’t fired by the NPP led Akufo-Addo administration as widely reported by a section of the media.
According to Dr Anyaah, he is pleased that the government has come out to clarify the reason why he was relieved of his duty.
Speaking to Joy News on Monday, Dr Felix Anyaah stated that he has not committed any wrong to merit a dismissal, but he was only relieved of his position due to his age.
The medical practitioner in his comment insisted that it will be wrong for anyone to say he has been “dismissed”, since his employer is aware his retirement age is due.
“I heard all sorts of speculations but whatever be the reason, I was there as a servant ready to serve. Government clearing the air that I was sacked due to my age was okay,” he said.
There has been a lot of speculations after President Akufo-Addo included Dr Anyaah in the list of CEOs who were relieved of their duties last Wednesday.
Although the reasons for the termination of his appointment was not immediately known, his contract cancellation came in the wake of seeming waves of dismissal of CEOs of state agencies by the President.
Already, the Managing Director of the Bulk Oil and Storage Transport (BOST), Alfred Obeng Boateng; CEO of Ghana Export Promotion Authority, Gifty Klenam; MD of the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority (GHAPOHA), Paul Ansah have all been relieved of their posts by President Akufo-Addo.
Meanwhile, there are some unconfirmed reports that, Dr Anyaah who was appointed in May 2017, was sacked after the termination of the hospital’s onsite banking contract with UniBank in which two deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso Boateng and Samuel Abu Jinapor intervened to get it reversed.
Following that development, controversial musician, and one-time aide of Dr Anyaa, Kwame Asare Obeng, aka A Plus, engaged the two in a social media spat, which ended at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, which they were later cleared.
