Just In: Ghana's Salary Shake-Up: Say Goodbye to Ghost Workers as Government Implements Bold Ghana Card Salary Requirement

Mr. Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem, the Controller and Accountant General, has stated that any public sector worker without a Ghana Card will risk losing his/her salary effective March, 2024.

This follows the launch of a software solution that integrated the databases of the Mechanised Payroll System of the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) and the National Identification Authority (NIA) for validation and verification of salaries of government workers.

The measure is to help eliminate ‘ghost names’ from the government payroll and ensure only legitimate government employees are paid. It will also ensure transparency, efficiency, and accountability in the utilization of public funds.

Vice President Bawumia launched the innovative system at the premises of the CAGD in Accra on Wednesday, 31st January.

The initiative was championed by the Office of the Vice President as part of the Government’s digitalization agenda, in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance, the CAGD, and the NIA.
