A statement jointly signed by the President Dr Kwabena Opoku Adusei and Dr Frank Serebour, General Secretary of the GMA said a Memorandum of Understanding agreed upon, committed both GMA and FWSC to abide by the ruling of the NLC to have further discussions spelling out clearly the implementation process to NLC by February 20th, 2013.

“If there is any lack of commitment on the part of FWSC representing government, to fully implement the ruling of NLC, the suspended road map will be reactivated without any further notice to any of the stakeholders,” it said.

The statement urged all GMA members to be on the alert as leadership worked through the full implementation of the NLC decision.
