Frank Kofi Davor, a retired labour consultant says President Mahama’s aide, Stan Dogbe, should be “dealt with” if he is found to have leaked confidential information in the conditions of service document presented by the striking doctors to government.

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) declared a nationwide strike on Thursday July 30 withdrawing all out-patient department (OPD) services following the failure of government to provide them with their conditions of service. They have threatened to resign en bloc if their demands are not met.

On Citi FM’s The Big Issue, Mr. Davor wondered why the content of the proposal was released for public consumption and suggested that Stan Dogbe be dealt with if he leaked it.

“I don’t know why the content of the proposal of the doctors were made public. It shouldn’t have been made public in the first place. It was wrong. And if he [Stan Dogbe] was the one who did it, he should be dealt with. It’s a breach of confidentiality. Perhaps he was given an approval to do so. If he was, then it’s wrong,” he told show host, Richard Sky.

According to him, the proposals the doctors sent should not have been disclosed unless both parties had agreed.

“That information has become the subject matter of negotiations, meaning you can’t go public. If after negotiations, some agreements have been reached and they decide to publish it, that is a different matter,” Mr. Davor noted.

On President Mahama’s statement that he will not “authorize any expenditure on wages and compensation not provided for in the budget”, Mr. Davor said it was unfortunate.

“Even though in substance the president was right about what he said, the forum and the timing was wrong... If you are negotiating with me, you don’t go out public and disclose what you are going to do when you come to the negotiating table. You breach trust. So in substance, what the president said will be said on the table by the people representing the employer which is the government. You can say the same thing at the negotiating table. Why do you go public and say it?” he quizzed.
