Concerns Over Salary Arrears


The teachers are saying the government has not paid them their salaries since being employed four months ago. The Newly trained teachers said the inability of the government paying their salaries for the past four months has affected their lives negatively, most especially in the wake of the novel COVID-19 lock down initiated by the government.


The teachers who were posted in November 2019 and had been asked to report to work on 2nd December 2019 according to their appointment letters, to which they obeyed.

However from December till April, they have not received any salary from Government even though they have had resumed work.


They lamented over their ordeals that despite having written the licensure exams and offering the  mandatory one-year National Service they are still being getting paid.


State Of The Arrears


The teachers noted that only two regions ( Greater Accra and Central region) had been paid. And that is because they did their biometric registration in February 2020. The remaining 14 regions are however yet to even do their biometric registration due to the lockdown caused by the pandemic.

The teachers are pleading with the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) to give them a updates regarding the biometric registration and payment salary arrears.



  1. Why is the government treating newly trained teachers this way? We’re suffering under this lockdown, government ,we need our money

  2. Infact we are really going through a though period since posted. Imagine your siblings are expecting some assistant from you and all you tell them is ‘the government did not pay’ how will they believe you.
    Aside that some us have to walk a long distance to school of which what to eat is also a problem because you don’t have money.
    They should do something fast about our salary and arrears so that we can also clear our depts.

  3. Not all newly posted teachers have even received their staff ID not to talk of going through biometric as well as payment of salaries
