Members of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital's Senior Staff Association, (KOSSA) have publicly asked President Akufo Addo to fire the health facilities Chief Executive officer.
In a statement signed by the association's Vice President, Mr. Augustine Sowah, the senior staff association state that the dismissal and "interdiction" of the hospital's Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Gilbert Buckle, would be "the only way to resolve" what they referred to as the rot at the referral facility.
The disgruntled association's demands follows recent rumors regarding un-sanctioned Christmas bonuses allegedly received by the CEO and certain members of the hospital's management to the tune of GHC 150,000.
KOSSA members expressed surprise faced with the news that members of management who were appointed to the hospital's board by the Mahama led National Democratic Congress (NDC) government are now “claiming innocence of the outrageous payments allegedly made by the Dr Buckle management to itself”.

“We at KOSSA do not believe this. But we ask, since when did Prof Mawuli Sallar and his board lose confidence in Dr Buckle and his leadership style? When we raised the preventive red flags about Dr Buckle, did he and his board not rubbish it and come after us?”
“We wish to refer Ghanaians to two main letters and reports: the first was dated April 16, 2016, and expressly addressed to Mr Segbefia, with the heading: Acts of impunity by the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital board and management.
“Prof Sallar’s board is mentioned because we tried to help him understand the plots but it looked as if there was either a political motive or sectional interest he pursued, culminating in this recent disaster from which he now wants to extricate himself,” it said.
