Physician Assistants Call Off Strike


The Ghana Physician Assistants Association has called off a sit-down strike and directed all members to report to work on Wednesday, 18 April 2018.

This follows a bail granted their colleague, Simon Takrama, one of two officers arrested in connection with the death of four persons at the New Senchi Health Centre in the Asuagyaman District.

The four died after they were injected with contaminated peninsoline.

The Somanya Magistrate’s Court remanded Mr Tarkrama, 42, and one James Yeboah, a 65-year-old retired field technician at New Senchi Health Centre (Disease Control Unit) in connection with the incident.

But the Ghana Physician Assistants Association said Mr Tarkrama is innocent and demanded his release.

They began a sit-down strike on Monday, 16 April 2018 to press home their demand.

On Tuesday, 17 March 2018, a Koforidua High Court granted the accused bail in the sum of GHS20,000 with two sureties after the bail application was submitted.

Addressing the press, the leadership of the Ghana Physician Assistants Association said they have instructed their members to return to work following the court’s decision.
