The Controller and Accountant General‘s Department (CAGD) have re-considered their decision on the ‘No Ghana card no pay’ policy.
Per their initial directive, the Controller and Accountant General‘s Department (CAGD) has stated that, all workers on government payroll without Ghana Card, would been denied their salaries by December 1, 2021.
In the latest directive, the CAGD has suspended the ‘no Ghana card no pay policy’. This new decision was arrived at, following a meeting by the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, Ministry of Finance, the CAGD and the leadership of organized labour representing public sector workers on CAGD payroll on Tuesday 19 October 2021.
In a collaborating effort between the Controller and Accountant General‘s Department (CAGD), and the National Identification Authority (NIA); to harmonized database, to facilitate biometric and unique identification of all workers on the government payroll, the CAGD warned last week, that workers on government payroll without National Identification Authority (NIA) numbers, will not be paid salary from December 1, 2021.
The move, it said, will also help the Government to deliver a speedy, secured, and verified payroll service to employees and pensioners, while reducing the risk of undeserving payments or claims.
The announcement has since generated into hot debates, and argument s on the various TV and radios stations in Ghana, and on social media… and also inviting mixed reactions from Ghanaians.
