The Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) has revealed that it has in its possession the documents of only three junior doctors which are currently being processed to enable them receive their July salaries.

“Per our documents, we have only three doctors whom we received their document last week… We do not have records for the 90 doctors,” the Director of Payroll at the CAGD, George Baah on Eyewitness News.

The representatives of the junior doctors reportedly met with the Controller last week but according to their spokesperson, Dr. Nana Kissi Attafah, the deal they were offered was unreasonable – a one month salary and a directive to individually apply to the CAGD for their remaining arrears to be paid.

Mr. Baah stated that CAGD cannot be blamed for the problem since the problem is not from his end. “Let us be clear as to where the problem is. We need to find out from them where they have gotten to in terms of the processing of their documents. For all you know, they may not have gone through the biometric process. It is a pre-condition for being on the mechanized payroll,” he said.

Explaining the processes one has to go through in order to be listed on the government payroll, Mr. Baah said: “After going through the biometric registration process at the Ministry of Finance, the data will then be sent to us to process their salaries.”
