She stated that for the avoidance of doubt, the strike action has jusymerely been suspended.

Mrs. Ampofo stated that their employer, (the government) was attempting to incite the court against them with regards to citing of contempt and subsequently causing the arrest of the leadership of the GRNMA.

She mentioned that that action by the government amounts to gross intimidation, which she described as very pathetic knowing they have not served them properly.

She expressed disappointment in the government for not finding better alternatives in dealing with the problem but rather developed a divide and rule approach by hiding behind some break away group to break their united front.

Mrs. Ofori Ampofo stated that the GRNMA would not tolerate any form of intimidation and victimisation from the government, its agents or representatives.
