Pro-New Patriotic Party group, the Kandahar Boys, who chased out the Chief Executive Officer of the Tamale Teaching Hospital from his office, Dr. David Zaawumya Kolbila, have justified their actions.
The group threatened to cause more chaos if the CEO is allowed back to the hospital.

“If things are not going on and we think we should just sit aloof and allow things to go wrong, I don’t think it will go on well for all us. If Tamale Teaching Hospital is what we can boast of in the Northern region, if things are not going on well there is a need for us come out and then raise the alarm. We will be monitoring; we have eagle eyes at the hospital,” he said.
But the Mayor of Tamale, Iddrisu Musah Superior, has condemned the action of the youth groups describing it as unacceptable.
“This government does not tolerate violence, if you are a citizen of Ghana, a citizen of Tamale, a citizen anywhere in Ghana and you are unsure about a particular activity that undermines our security, that undermines or collective development, you have the right as a citizen to report that to the appropriate authority. We do not encourage people. We don’t encourage people barging into people’s offices and using this military style approach to remove them from their offices, that is totally unacceptable,” he said.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Tamale Teaching Hospital was chased out of the hospitalon Monday.
The group stormed the hospital in collaboration with a group calling itself the Concerned NPP Youth Coalition.
The group complained that the CEO has exhibited incompetence, misused hospital funds and ignored them despite the role they played in getting him appointed.
They further accused him of traveling to China without handing over to the next in command.
