Delay in processing public workers’ January salaries, fake news -Mustapha

The Minister of Information and President Spokesman Mustapha Abdul Hamid has dispelled rumours that the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) will delay in processing January 2018 salaries of public sector workers.

According to him, the CAGD has sent payment advice of public sector workers to their various banks last week Friday January 19, 2018.

A purported release was circulated on WhatsApp over the weekend signed by the Accountant General Eugene Ofosuhene.

But addressing journalists in Accra during a news conference, Mustapha described the release as fake news.

‘I wish to state that it is fake news and should be disregarded,’ he said.
