Cardio workers divided over Prez Mills' directive
After a heated argument and debate during a meeting of doctors and surgeons at the National Cardiothoracic Centre within the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital today, management failed to conclude whether the directive by President Mills for Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng to hand over power appropriately in one month should be accepted or not.
During a heated argument at the meeting, Asempa News observed that the doctors were divided over the directive and as a result, could not come to a conclusion.
The meeting therefore had to go on recess for management to re-convene later today.
As a result, management ordered security personal at the various gates of the Centre to inform fresh patients to go home since they were not going to attend to them. The Centre was virtually empty as patients were not allowed in.
The stranded patients and their families had no option than to pack bag and baggage and leave the Centre.
Some told Asempa News that there is urgent need for President Mills to re-instate Professor Frimpong Boateng.
Meanwhile, foreign students who have come to the National Cardiothoracic Centre to understudy the Centre have expressed shock at the dismissal of its Founder, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng.
The foreign students say his dismissal is a blow to them since they have spent a lot from their various countries to come to Ghana to study, only for them to be told their lecturer or leader has been sacked.
A Nigerian who gave his name as Kenneth explained that the Professor is the heart of the heart giants in Africa and so sacking him could collapse the Centre.
