The Controller and Accountant General’s Department has informed government workers to obtain Ghana Card to avoid withholding their salary.
Workers on the government payroll have been tasked to locate the nearest Ghana Card registration centre to register for a card. The inconvenience of having salaries withheld will happen if any government worker refuses to obtain the Ghana Card before December 1, 2021.
The statement issued by the department announced their plan to harmonize the database to facilitate biometric of all government workers. The controller and Accountant General department is hoping to improve the security and eliminate ghost names on their payroll.
The entire process will be facilitated by the Controller and Accountant General Department in collaboration with the National Identification Authority.
It is therefore advisable for all Ghanaians to register and obtain their Ghana Card to avoid future inconvenience.
