Controller And Account General, s Department Suspends No Ghana Card No Sallary Directive

It appears the Controller and Account General, s Department has backed down on its directive to all Public sector workers to get their Ghana Card or forfeit their Sallary.

This is due to stiffer opposition from labour unions who are against the directive from the Controller And Accountant General, s Department.

The directive was to the effect that, all public sector workers must acquire Ghana Card by December 2021 or they will not be paid.

Groups such as the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), and other labour unions including the Trade Union Congress (TUC), have called for the suspension of the directive as it is arbitrary.

The Minority in Parliament have also kicked against the directive describing it as unfortunate.

Now, Public sector workers can have a sigh of relief as the directive has been suspended.

As part of efforts to have a single ID in Ghana, the Ghana Card is been used for all transactions in the Country.

As part of the reasons for the directive, the Controller And Accountant General, s Department indicated that, it will eliminate the problem of ghost names in the system.
