GNAT calls on CAGD to correct errors in teachers' salaries


Accra, March 14, GNA – The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), has called on the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) to rectified errors ranging from non-payment of salaries, reduction in salaries, non-payment of arrears and reduction in arrear of teachers.

     A statement signed by Mr Peter Korda, Public Relations Officer of GNAT, copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Tuesday, said the association's attention has been drawn to various degrees of errors by  the CAGD  .

     The GNAT said the situation was very disturbing and it had contacted  the Ghana Education Service and the CAGD  for explanation on  the cause of the errors and what was  being done to correct the anomalies to pave the way for effecting payment.

     The statement said: “It is worthy of note that  teachers are expressing disquiet about the situation and the GNAT finds their anger justifiable since their monies are being withheld without any explanation.”
