13,800 Teachers’ Salaries Blocked

Most teachers have not received their salary for last month

The April salary of nearly 14,000 teachers have been mistakenly blocked by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

The mistake, according to officials of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) occurred while the government was making attempts to clean the payroll of ghost names by enforcing that all public sector workers get validated biometrically by Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT).

On May Day, President Nana Akufo-Addo announced that close to 27,000 ghosts have been expunged from the payroll saving the country about GHS 450million.

But the teachers say some of their members have been mistakenly affected.

The anomaly will be remedied by May 15.
