The Policy Analyst of People’s National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed, is of the opinion that striking members of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) risk losing any public sympathy the general public has for them in their demand for settlement arrears should the group go ahead with its threat to withdraw emergency services.

“...reverse the decision to withdraw emergency service because this might erode public sympathy they are enjoying at the moment,” he said.

He, however, wants them to continually press for what is rightful theirs.

Speaking on Okay fm, Atik Mohammed agreed to the fact that the doctors ought to be paid the SSNIT deductions and the convention difference because at the end of the day these help their salaries to go up, and ask the public not to confuse convention difference as allowance.

He pointed out the doctors deserve better treatment after service because those who have retired are suffering with the meager which they receive from SSNIT as pension allowance; stressing that their lives are nothing to write home about, hence the decision of GMA to fight for their future by paying the substantive amount to the doctors.

He further said that the doctors have a good case they are pursuing but quickly added that their actions too have direct effect on Ghanaians more than the government officials.

The PNC Policy Analyst hinted that there are several leakages which are still going on as government is sinking money into enterprises which the profit cannot be measured; and suggested that government take steps to seal these loopholes so as to raise enough money to deal with some of these outstanding concerns.
