Medical Doctors have called off their almost three-week old strike with immediate effect.


Assistant General Secretary of the GMA Dr. Frank Siribuor confirmed the decision in an interview with Nana Bobie Ansah, host of Asempa FM's political talk programme Ekosii Sen.

He said the decision was informed by the countless appeals by well-meaning groups including the Ghana Peace Council, Christian and Moslem groups, civil society groups across the country.

He said considering the many appeals, it was not worth it continuing with the strike and urged all doctors to return to duty as leaders continue negotiations with the Fair Wages and Salary Commission.

He said they also had to return to duty to demystify the notion that they are mass murderers.

Whilst returning to work, he was hopeful their grievances would be met.

Dr. Siribuor however lamented what he said were unjustified criticisms against them.

Critics most of whom were government spokesperson condemned the strike by the doctors with some calling the leaders of the GMA as mass murderers.

Dr Siribuor said those criticism were misplaced.

He also confirmed that the GMA met president John mills on Sunday over the same matter.

He was however not ready to divulge the full details of the meeting, except to say that President Mills had counseled them to follow the due process of the law.
