CAGD Staff Threatens To Forsake Salary Validations Over Forfeited “Honorarium”

Some staff members of the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) calling themselves Concerned CAGD Staff have petitioned their Management and the Finance Ministry over the payment of their “honorarium”.

In a petition to the two bodies, the group pointed out they had not been paid in the last two years.


“Having been denied our 2021 honorarium for the first time in the history of CAGD, we the concerned staff of CAGD wish to unequivocally state that any attempts by the Management of CAGD and the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to once again deny our hardworking staff of this age-old ‘solace’ would not be tolerated”, a part of their petitioned read.

They are threatening to launch a series of actions to demand the money including forsaking salary validation.

“Staff would be left with no option than to embark on series of legitimate actions, including abstaining from the upcoming national accounts validations exercise and the GoG monthly salary validations, to get this allowance paid us.”

The petition from staff from the 16 regions in the country said, “We are by this petition, serving notice to the CAGD Management and the MoF to, as a matter of urgency, get this matter addressed or we advise ourselves.

“All staff of the sixteen Regions of Ghana are on this date, presenting this letter to our Management and the MoF through the Regional Directors of CAGD, calling on CAGD and MoF to do the needful by paying the two years (2021 & 2022) honorarium with immediate effect to avoid the repercussions of our intended actions.”

It is unknown if the denial of the “honorarium” by the government is in line with announced expenditure cuts announced by Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta while reading the 2023 Budget.

In November, he said, “there shall be no hampers for 2022”.
