Minister of Health Kwaku Agyemang Manu has ordered management of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to reinstate, with immediate effect, Dr Charles Offei-Palm, the President of the Korle Bu Senior Staff Association (KOSSA).
Dr Offei-Palm was interdicted last year for what management says was bringing the name of the Hospital into disrepute, following an interview on an Accra-based radio station.
His interdiction did not go down well with members of KOSSA, whose demonstration did not get management to rescind its decision.
But on Friday, 3FM’s Sarah Parku reports, Mr Agyemang Manu intervened and ordered Dr Offei-Palm to be reinstated with immediate effect.
He met the two parties at the Ministry of Health.
As per his interdiction, Dr Offei-Palm has had his salary halved while he forfeited allowances, as punishment.
But a settlement package is expected to be heard in court on Wednesday for the process of reinstatement to formally begin.
3FM‘s Sarah Parku quotes Mr Offei-Palm as promising to withdraw all court cases if an agreement is reached over his reinstatement, as per the Minister’s directive.
