Why are most Ghanaians furious about Neutrality Allowance

Ghanaians are perplexed as to why some laws are enacted without their knowledge to benefit a select group of civil servants.

Ghana Civil And Local Government Staff Association of Ghana is organizing protests around the country over the payment of a neutrality allowance that they are requesting (CLOGSAG). People are enraged by the neutrality allowance demanded by the Ghana Civil and Local Government Staff Association, given the country's economic difficulties.

According to a conversation on Peace FM's renowned Kokroko morning show, hosted by Kwame Sefa Kayi. All attempts to contact CLOSAG's leaders were failed.

Ghanaians are furious as a result of the country's current economic uncertainty. One would wonder why the country is in such a desperate need of finances to stabilize the economy rather than paying such allowances to a small number of civil servants.

Ghanaians are perplexed as to why our country's priorities are skewed. The E-Levy was implemented to raise internal money to sustain the country's infrastructure. Many people in the country are opposed to the adoption of the E-Levy. The National Executives of the University Teachers Association of Ghana is currently on strike (UTAG).

The panelists on Peace FM's Kokroko morning show, hosted by Kwame Sefa Kayi, were enraged, claiming that the E-Levy was introduced to pay such unnecessary allowances to a few senior government employees.

Because the government has failed to pay its employees their neutrality allowance, the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) has embarked on strike.

The neutrality allowance was part of a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the government on January 20, 2022, according to the Association.

Individuals are threatening to take the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana to court over the Neutrality Allowance (CLOGSAG).

Ghanaians are dissatisfied with this development and are willing to go to any length to oppose the government's decision on the Neutrality Allowance.
