GES justifies decision for teachers to pay salaries to occupy gov’t bungalows

Published

on



Earlier, Pulse.com.gh reported that teachers occupying either a school or a government bungalow are expected to pay ten percent of their basic salary for enjoying the government apartment.

The Director of Education in the Western Region, Mrs. Felicia Agyeibea Okai referred to a Ministry of Finance circular dated May 15, 2006, in connection with the payment.

She said “I, therefore, write to inform you that with effect from 1st March 2022 all Teachers/Staff occupying School/Government bungalow are to pay 10% of their basic salary.”

However, the GES in a statement has justified its decision to bill the teachers who occupy government bungalows.

In a statement, it said “Management of GES has taken note of the concerns raised by GNAT on behalf of the pre-tertiary education unions on this issue and will be meeting the leadership of the unions to discuss their concerns in the coming days.

“Management of GES fully endorses the letter issued by its Western Regional Director and wishes to request all cost centre managers to be guided by the said Ministry of Finance’s circular on the issue of rent on staff occupying Government bungalows so long as that circular is valid and enforceable. This is necessary to avoid future queries and subsequent appearance before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament on the subject.”

The GES continued that “Management of GES wishes to reiterate that it is not the GES which is imposing the rent or determining how much is to be paid but purely being guided by the Ministry of Finance’s circular and the admonitions of the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament.”

“Kamale Mulele,” according to Isaac Sie, means ‘God is king,’ and it is inspired by the wonderful works of the creator and his kingdom that is about to come.

For Isaac Sei, God has unlimited attributes, and the title of his latest banger is just one of them.

Although the gospel star has been painfully sidelined by prestigious awards schemes in Ghana despite creating hit songs like “Boborebobo,” his latest song isn’t targeted at any award scheme. However, if it grabs the attention of awards schemes, he won’t deny them the honour.

Award is not the main objective for my latest single, but welcomed if it comes,” Isaac Sie disclosed in an interview. The DHE GILLY RECORDS label frontman advised his loyal fans who have been supporting his career and been through the thick and thin with him that they “should look up to God. He is KING!”

The song is available on all digital stores across the globe. Stream the full song below, and don’t forget to share your candid views.
