In a public notice to all public sectors workers, the controller and accountant general’s department has stated that; “effective December 1, 2021, workers on the Government of Ghana payroll who have not registered with the NIA will not be paid”.
This is coming after the Ministry of Communication and Digitization launched a re-registration of SIM cards across the country. From this directive, the Ghana Card will be the only valid ID to register for a SIM card in Ghana.
The controller and accountant general’s department is collaborating with the NIA to ensure that every public sector worker owns a valid Ghana Card.
According to the notice, this will help to reduce the risk of underserving payments or claims. The public notice was signed by Kwesi Kwaning Bosompem – the Controller and Accountant General.
