The Acting Controller and Accountant-General, Kwasi Kwaning-Bosompem, has allayed fears of teachers over a publication about reported deductions in their November salaries.
Mr Kwaning-Bosompem indicated that the deductions are as a result of an agreement reached between the Ghana Education Service (GES) and various teacher unions.
“The Ghana Education Service officially wrote to request for the deduction of 30% of the cost of laptops supplied to teachers under the One-Teacher-One-Laptop programme amounting to 509.55ghc,” the Controller and Accountant-General stated in a press release on Thursday, November 25.
“The 70% of the cost of the laptop is being borne by the government of Ghana.”
He further indicated that GES also wrote for a deduction of GH¢100 as Teacher Licensing Fee.
“These deductions, per the letters we received were as a result of agreements between the Ghana Education Service and the various teacher unions.
“The Controller and Accountant-General will NOT unilaterally effect deductions from salaries without the necessary authorisation.”
Mr Kwaning-Bosompem assured all government employees that they will paid what is legitimately due them.
