The Attorney-General’s office described the strike as illegal, and further directed them to return to work by Tuesday, January 3, 2017, or be “considered as having vacated post.”

The state attorneys, however, insisted that their strike was legal and hence will not return to work.

But appearing before the Appointments Committee of parliament on Saturday for vetting, the Attorney General-nominee said the president, Nana Akufo-Addo had intervened in the matter and has succeeded in persuading the State Attorneys to return to work.

“I spoke with their national president and she assured me they will be reporting, God willing, on Monday,” she stated.

Ms. Akuffo also revealed that there will be a further meeting with the state attorneys on Tuesday, January 24.

She said the meeting is to “look for not only immediate and medium term solutions but also long-term solutions. This will require the intervention of all the stakeholders; the attorneys, and it has to do with money, so maybe the fair wages commission and Ministry of Finance.”

“I will work very hard on bringing an amicable solution to the matter,” Ms. Akuffo said.
