The dismissed Medical Director of the Ridge Regional Hospital Dr Thomas Anaba has sued government over his dismissal from office.

Dr. Anaba in a writ filed at the Supreme Court is praying the court to issue an “order declaring that the decision of the minister of health contained in the letter dated 10 May 2017 was unlawful and therefore null and void and of no effect whatsoever”.

He is also praying for an “order reinstating the applicant to the position of medical director, Greater Accra regional Hospital, Ridge in Ghana Health Service or to an equivalent position in the Ghana Health Service without a reduction in the rank and other conditions of service”.

Dr. Anaba’s appointment was supposed to last till 2020 and had the option to re-apply but has been revoked. He was appointed on February 1, 2016 during the tenure of former President John Mahama.

It is unclear why the Public Service Commission and the government terminated his appointment.

The Health Minister Dr. Kwaku Agyemang-manu said Dr Anaba is no longer useful at the facility and has no managerial skills and is unfit to manage the hospital.

He said “I transferred him because he is no longer useful for me to manage the new facility… he can never refuse to leave that position, let him so try it… we will take over our place.

“We have not employed him, he is a Lecturer at the University so he should go back to the University to lecture because they are still paying him, and if they are not in need of him, they wouldn’t be still paying him.”
