If CAGD management and the Ministry of Finance (MoF) fail to pay the concerned staff of the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) their allowances, they threaten to take a number of steps.
According to the organisation, the honoraria due to its members for 2021 and 2022 have not been paid.
In addition, they threatened to skip the impending national accounts validation exercise and the monthly wage validations for the Government of Ghana (GoG) if their allowances were not paid.
“Having been denied our 2021 honorarium for the first time in the history of CAGD, we the concerned staff of CAGD wish to unequivocally state that any attempts by the Management of CAGD and the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to once again deny our hardworking staff of this age-old “solace” would not be tolerated,” the group wrote in a petition to the Ministry of Finance and CAGD on Wednesday, January 10, 2023.
“We are by this petition, serving notice to the CAGD Management and the MoF to, as a matter of urgency, get this situation addressed or we advise ourselves,” the offended Concerned Staff of CAGD continued.
To avoid the consequences of our intended actions, “all staff of the sixteen Regions of Ghana are on this date, presenting this letter to our Management and the MoF through the Regional Directors of CAGD, calling on CAGD and MoF to do the necessary by paying the two years’ honorarium (2021 & 2022) with immediate effect.”
