The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has described as hoax reports from government officials that they have presented a counter proposal to them, which has been rejected.
“We have not received any proposal from the government since our last General Meeting on Friday. What they are saying in the public that the minister has signed and presented us a proposal is a hoax,” noted Deputy General Secretary of the GMA, Dr. Justice Yankson.
Dr. Yankson made this observation in an interview with Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Si Mi So on Kasapa 102.3 FM Monday.
There were widespread reports last Sunday that the government was going to meet the doctors and find an amicable solution to the impasse that has resulted in the withdrawal of their services from the OPD and that of Emergency situations.
Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Kasapafmonline.com learnt, was going to be the lead negotiator on behalf of the government.
Later, reports emerged that the doctors have rejected a proposal the government presented to them.
But Dr. Yankson commenting on the matter told Owusu Adjei that those reports are all part of the propaganda being played in the media by the government.
“There is no proposal. If there is, they should come out and tell give us documentary proof with dates and signature of the proposal they sent to us. There hasn’t been anything like that and we as doctors are not perturbed at all.” – Credit: Kasapafmonline.com
