Ghana Medical Association (GMA) in a statement on Friday signed by its president Dr. Kwabena Opoku-Adusei announced the suspension of the strike.
It added that the council took the decision following the interventions of some eminent individuals and organisations.
He said it is government that should be apologising.
He was speaking on Eyewitness News when he was asked whether the GMA will apologise to Ghanaians for the needless deaths that occurred when public sector workers embarked on strike for three weeks.
“If there is any apology to such people, I think it should come from government and not the Ghana Medical Association,” he insisted.
It has also directed its members to report to work on Monday August 24, 2015.
Meanwhile, Dr. Serebour rejected claims that calling off the strike means they had been defeated by government.
“The issue with the GMA is that we are a very democratic organization, people have their views and opinions. Even in this meeting, there were varied views but at the end of the day we go with the collective opinion and then we accept. So that is exactly what we did today.”
