The Head of Political Science department at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Amoako Baah has described as “unfortunate” President Mahama’s comments that he will not go beyond the budget allocation in dealing with the Ghana Medical Association's demand for conditions of service.

The Ghana Medical Association declared a strike action last Thursday after their negotiations with government hit a deadlock and have threatened to resign en bloc if their demands are not met.

But President Mahama addressing members of the Ghana Registered Midwives Association at the launch of their 80th anniversary in Accra stated that, “any agreements that are reached in respect of allowances or conditions of services would have to be appropriately captured in the budget. And I want to say for emphasis , I will not authorize any expenditure on wages and compensation not provided for in the budget."

His posture, according to Dr. Amoako Baah was unnecessary.

“It is unfortunate because he is not supposed to do that. When you are engaged in negotiation with another party, you don’t come out and make a unilateral statement like this. He should have stayed out of the fray,” he said on Starr FM.
