A member of the Ghana Medical Association has revealed that their decision to continue with their strike is not to punish government or the suffering public.
Public sector doctors had threatened to resign en masse on Friday if government failed yield to their demands of conditions of service.
However, after a crucial meeting in Accra Friday, the doctors decided to rather continue with their nationwide strike and review their decision after two weeks if government fails to meet their demands.
President Mahama has already described the strike as absolutely illegal adding that government will not be coerced by the doctors to yield to their outrageous demands.
Speaking to Starr Today Friday, Dr. Hardi Abdallah told host Bernard Nassara Saibu that government needs to seek good advice to help resolve the impasse.
He added that the posturing of the President and other government officials is only worsening the situation.
“Extension of strike is not to punish government,” Dr. Abdallah said, adding “we clearly understand the implications of these issues”.
“Monitoring social media you realise that majority of doctors support this stand. Government needs some advice and some of us will be ready to offer such advice”.
