Gomoa Pomadze, April 14, GNA – Odeefo Kwame Nkansah II, Head of African Faith Tabernacle Church, has appealed to President Mahama to make a personal intervention in the on-going strike action by doctors and other labour unions.
He said President Mahama, being the father of the nation, should strive hard to resolve the labour unrest to ensure increased productivity.
Odeefo Nkansah made the appeal at a press briefing after a meeting with the various pastors of the church at Pomadze in the Gomoa East District of the Central Region.
He said government should endeavour to look for lasting solution to the strike embarked on by doctors, University Teachers Association of Ghana, pharmacists and other unions threatening to embark on strike to demand better conditions of service.
Odeefo Nkansah expressed the hope that government would try hard to look for money to settle the striking workers to ensure industrial peace.
He also appealed to the doctors to rescind their decision and that everybody was aware of their importance and, therefore, should sympathize with patients, especially children.
Odeefo Nkansah said though money was first in everything they should also give premium to human life since the nation could not develop without a healthy population.
He appealed to politicians to create an enabling environment for the youth and give them the necessary training that would benefit them in future. He advised the youth to desist from drug abuse, alcoholism and other nefarious acts to enable them to become responsible adults. GNA
