Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Malik Kweku Baako, has stated in unambiguous terms that he finds it ridiculous for Ghana, as a nation, to be challenged with disorder such as doctors going on strike.
Making a comparison to an editorial which appeared in the 2007 edition of the Daily Graphic to that of 2013, Mr. Baako noted that the current government could draw certain lessons on how to handle strikes by doctors and saved the nation from facing entertaining ‘stillborn’ actions.
According to him, “there is somebody somewhere who is not up to the kind of responsibilities that has been entrusted to him or her to undertake. So here we are, at this stage confronted with industrial agitation by doctors”.
He castigated all bodies who are to ensure that the industrial action embarked upon the doctors are resolved amicably; declaring that their approach to the matter lacked proactiveness.
Contributing to discussions on Joy FM’s News File political analysis show, Mr. Baako continued that it was as if our leaders enjoyed seeing the nation, confronted with recycled troubles.
He added that the culture of always proposing solutions which are “inapplicable” should be halted and the nation must find proper solutions to end labour unrests.
