The Upper West Branch of the Coalition of Concerned Teachers (CCT) Ghana is threatening legal action against the Ministry of Finance and Controller and Accountant General’s Department for withholding salaries of some of its members.

The Department seeks to purge government’s payroll of ghost names. But according to the Association’s Chair, Alhassan Abdul Salifu the decision is harsh and not well executed.

“We can bus affected people to Accra for the Accountant General to see that they’re not ghosts but active public servants.”

The exercise took retroactive effect April 2015.
