Chief Executive Officer of the Obengfo Hospital Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh has accused the registrar of the Medical and Dental Council of closing his facility as a way of settling personal scores with him.
The beleaguered doctor who is undergoing trial for his role in the mysterious death of Stacy Offei Darko who until her death was the deputy CEO of National Entrepreneurship Innovative Programme (NEIP) had been accused by the registrar of not having the licence to practice.
The Registrar, Dr Eli Atikpui had said in media interviews that Dr Obeng-Andoh had no valid license to operate at the time of Stacy’s passing at his facility.
He referenced an incident in which Dr Obeng-Andoh’s facility was closed down and himself suspended in 2013 after he was found guilty of medical malpractice, a charge the Obeng said he had appealed and sought a stay of execution.
Dr Obeng-Andoh, therefore, feels the registrar has a personal score to settle with him, accusing him of waging a war against him unnecessarily.
“I feel the registrar at the Medical Council has a personal score to settle with me. I can prove it any day because it doesn’t make sense that he will wage war against me unnecessarily as far as my license is concerned,” he said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Thursday.
He has also accused Dr Atikpui of making defamatory and malice-filled statements in the media to suggest he Dr Obeng-Andoh is a quack medical practitioner in spite of his qualification for medical practice.
He asserts that the presence of police at his facility, the Advanced Body sculpt Centre session of the Obengfo Hospital on the orders of the Registrar of the Council was part of his agenda to force him out of practice.
“I am worried for Ghana because we destroy everything good for the country,” he observed.
“The court asked the MDC to file their so-called proceedings that led to its decision to suspend me but they [MDC] have failed to defend their bogus judgment against me till date. The case is still pending,” he continued.
