Kwesi Pratt has called on the aggrieved nurses who are on strike to go back to work and save the lives of the poor Ghanaian.
The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) including sector nurses, midwives, Physician Assistants (PAs) and Anesthetists (CRAs) have lay down their tools to demand for better working conditions from the government which started on Monday, September 21, 2020.
Speaking of Peace FM’s Kokrokoo, the managing editor of the Insight Newspaper said ‘If His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo falls sick today and we have to take him for medical treatement for even a month, we will do it. If we have to charter ambulance jet to fly him outside, we will take him. The people who will suffer are the poor people.”
“I admit that you’re being cheated and in fact, it’s not only you who feel cheated but a lot of Ghanaians as well…So, we are all cheated and should we all decided to take an action, we shouldn’t think about ourselves only but have a plan that will help ease all of us. My dear nurses, you have a good case. You have been cheated for too long but we plead with you to resume work so that the innocent pregnant woman won’t lose her life” Kwesi Pratt said to sympathize with the nurses.
However, the nurses have called off the strike after the National Labor Commission secured an interim injunction to prevent the nurses and midwives and will return to work on Friday, September 25, 2020.
