The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) will from August 1, 2022, declare a nationwide strike over fuel allowance, Starr News sources within the association have revealed.
This follows the failure of the Government to respect an agreement for an upward review of fuel allowance for doctors every 6 months.
According to Starr News sources, all efforts by the doctors to get the government to deliver on the agreement have been unsuccessful.
The doctors currently receive GHC6.05 pesewas for fuel per month. They contend current economic conditions make the fuel allowance woefully inadequate.
