Public servants beseige Controller and Accountant General's Department for non payment of July salaries
A large number of public servants on government payroll besieged the Cape Coast office of the Controller and Accountant General's Department, CAGD for non-payment of their July salaries.
The workers, most of them from the health, education and local government services did not have their accounts credited to their accounts at the various banks when they checked.
Reasons cited included failure to register during the recent biometric registration conducted for government workers by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.
Meanwhile, some others who registered did not also have their salaries.
The situation resulted in a near stampede as the workers struggled in a queue to either register or enquire about the reason for the delay of their salaries.
