Government workers without Ghana Cards will not be paid from December 1, 2021.

The Controller and Accountant General’s Department has said that the policy forms part of ongoing measures to harmonise its systems.

The Communications Ministry has already indicated that the laws specify the Ghana Card as the sole form of identification verification in the country.

The Department believes that in ensuring the synchronization of its financial remuneration process, the card will ensure a speedy administration of the payroll.
