Public sector workers salary to be frozen by CAGD on March 5

A strict initiative to delist public sector workers without Ghana Card numbers has been launched by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD), which would also freeze their pay as of March 5, 2024.

He was delivering a speech today at an event in Accra to announce the integration of NIA data with the CAGD payroll.

Controller and Accountant-General Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompen claims that this will guarantee that ghost names are removed from government payroll.

“With the effect of March 24, this year, all employees without Ghana Card face the risk of being not paid on the government payroll,” Mr Kwaning-Bosompen explained.

In light of this, the CAGD director encouraged employees and members to apply for Ghana Cards at any NIA office around the country.

He also clarified that the new modality “is just there to enhance all these controls and make it possible for us to have a credible database.”

For him, this “linkage between the national payroll and NIA database has not come to replace existing payroll controls and protocols.”
