Stop begging and meet our demands – GMA tells Mahama

The President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Kwabena Adusei-Poku has advised President John Mahama to stop appealing to them to call off their strike action and meet their demands. 

President Mahama on Thursday practically begged the Doctors to discontinue their strike and save lives. 

But speaking to Citi News, Dr. Adusei-Poku said the President must show commitment in addressing the grievances. 

“In one breath, the President is appealing to us. In another breath, he has instructed their agents to take us to court so which one do we take first? …their Ministers are just insulting us and insulting us. Somebody is appealing and somebody is insulting us.”

According to him, the members of the GMA have been very reasonable, only that “the pay master also doesn’t want to be reasonable. I think it’s a simple issue.”

The Doctors have been on strike for three weeks to back their demand for the payment of the 2012 market premium arrears.
