As at time of the suspension of the petition, 200 people had signed it calling for the president to pardon the medical doctor.
One of the organisers said in a comment to Pulse.com.gh via email that the petition was suspended "due to several reasons."
"We don't want to inflame the situation," the statement added.
Subsequently, a formal notice has been announced on change.org, where the petition was originally started, calling off the petition.
The statement said: "New information coming from higher offices dealing with this matter request the suspension of this petition, whiles further deliberations on this case proceed. You shall be updated on any changes accordingly. This petition will therefore be deleted. Thanks for your support."

The petition is believed to have been started by the family and colleagues of doctor Gabass who was jailed in 2015 for defiling a 16 year old.
The petition said imprisonment of Dr Gabass "thus far, has served the purpose of not only correcting him, but will also deter others from committing a similar offense."
It said Gabass' past contribution to society, particularly by serving diligently as a medical doctor who performed countless bloodless surgeries at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital, Sekondi, significantly helped in reducing the maternal mortality ratio within the western region of Ghana.
"We believe his skills as a medical practitioner could even be employed to the benefit of the various facilities at the Ghana Prisons Service which has for years been plagued with a dearth of medical practitioners."
"We do pray on the President to grant this petition some consideration for the sake of the remorseful doctor and for the benefit of the good people of Ghana," the petition concluded.
