Dr Thomas Anaba,

Go away! Ridge staff to Anaba
Workers at the Ridge Hospital, now Greater Accra
Regional Hospital, have welcomed the transfer of
Dr Thomas Anaba, the Medical Director.

He was served with his transfer letter on Monday,
15 May and asked to vacate post in two hours. Dr
Anaba was appointed amidst controversy on 1
February 2016 by President John Mahama. His
appointment was to last till 2020 after which he
would have had the option of reapplying to stay

Dr Anaba is, however, resisting his transfer. He
is demanding to know if the transfer had the
blessing of the Public Service Commission and the
Ghana Health Service (GHS) Council – which is yet
to be constituted.

“I don’t exactly know why I have been dismissed,”
he said on Wednesday, 17 May, in an interview on
the sidelines of the official opening of the
refurbished hospital, explaining: “The letter only
said they are restructuring Ridge Hospital so for
that matter ‘you are being released to go’, which
I think is an absurd reason.”

Dr Anaba said: “They said I should hand over
immediately, I can’t take two hours to hand over
immediately because this is not a small project I
was handling.

“I have documents, several things I have to tell
the incoming director, however, I’ve requested for
explanations why they dismissed me while I’m
planning either to hand over or I continue, so,
when they bring the response and I’m satisfied, I
give them the handing over notes and I leave,” he

But speaking in an interview with Chief Jerry
Forson, host of Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM on
Friday May 19, a worker who spoke on condition of
anonymity revealed that there was tension between
the senior management of the hospital when Dr
Anaba was the Medical Director.

According to the worker, Dr Anaba created division
among the workers, a situation which affected the
hospital negatively, therefore, they accept his

“Dr Anaba should accept the transfer and move
away. There was no unity among the top hierarchy
of the hospital when he was the Medical Director.

“He tormented some workers and planted spies
around to feed him with information, information
which were mostly lies and that did not help the
hospital, and, so, for most of the workers we
accept his transfer.”
