The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital Dr. Felix Anyaa has been relieved of his post, StarrFM can confirm.
StarrFM sources say Dr. Anyaa was not approved by the Public Services Commission after he appeared for his interview for the job.
The dismissal comes in the wake of the seeming wave of dismissals of Chief Executives of state agencies by President Akufo-Addo.
Already, the Managing Director of the Bulk Oil and Storage Transport (BOST) Alfred Obeng Boateng, CEO of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority Gifty Klenam, her two deputies and the MD of the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority Paul Ansah have all been sacked in a Wednesday action by the President.
The move is seen as part of efforts by the President to rid government agencies of what seems to be a cycle of boardroom wrangling between chief executives of state agencies and their boards.
The Akufo-Addo government is afflicted with persistent clashes between CEOs and board members. Last month, CEO of the Ghana Cylinder Manufacturing Company Frances Essiam was engaged in an open spat with her board, accusing them of witch-hunting.
“For all the things that he [board chairman] said, I will take the appropriate means administratively, legally to seek redress and repair my image.
“The law will take its course…and trust me the law will take its course because I am talking as a woman whose reputation is being wounded,” she told Starr News
A decision by the board to have her step aside was reversed by the head of State Enterprise Commission Stephen Asamoah Boateng.
