The action of the youth in Tamale smacks of lawlessness, thus they should be made to face the full rigour of the law. This according to the National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Henry Nana Boakye.
According to him, all members of the Coalition of Concern NPP Youth who violently attacked and forcefully removed the Chief Executive Officer of Tamale Teaching Hospital, Dr. David Zawumya Kolbila from office on Monday should be arrested.
Condemning the act in no uncertain terms, Nana Boakye called on the police to take every step necessary to bring sanity to the facility.
“The police should arrest them and make them face the full rigours of the law….This was not sanctioned by the NPP youth wing, the party knows nothing about this development,” he said that in an interview.
He also added that, ” the party is distancing itself from the act and condemn it in no uncertain terms.”
In a video circulating on social media, some NPP youth were seen asking the CEO and other occupants of the office to pack and leave. The CEO was made to clear his table and paraded out of the three-story complex amidst unrestrained verbal denigrations.
The party vigilante group asserted that, the CEO is adopting a habit of issuing threats to staff, engaging in procurement breaches, neglecting the purchase of key hospital consumables such as examination gloves, needles and syringes, and illegal transfer of drugs to stock his private hospital and incompetence.
