Although the Ghana Medical Association has called of its three-week nationwide strike – they are to meet Listowel Nana Kusi-Poku, General Secretary of the United Front Party (UFP), in court today.
Listowell filed a writ on August 6 at the Labor and Industrial Division of the Accra Fast Track High Court, seeking the legality of the strike action by members of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA).
On their first meeting in court – legal counsels for the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) requested for some time to file an application to oppose the writ after questioning the right of the General Secretary of the UFP to drag members of the association to court over their nationwide strike.
The court however granted the doctors’ request for more time and adjourned the case to August 26 – but despite the doctors’ call off strike, they are to reappear in court to justify the legality of their strike which according reports claimed about 500 lives.
Speaking to Peacefmonline.com,Listowell maintained that – “Some of doctors have called on me to withdraw the case, but I am not doing that. We have to prevent such illegal strike from happening again in the future.”
