The management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has said it has requested that teachers whose names were on the list who could justify that they were entitled to be paid legacy arrears to submit details to their respective regional/district directorates of Education.
The Ghana Education Service was speaking in defence of its claims that it has fully paid the Legacy arrears of teachers who deserved payment.
The GES said it has verified and fully paid every teacher and every member of staff of the service who deserve the legacy arrears.
The last tranche of payment was made in December last year to 1,200 members of staff.
It, however, said that management, after further checks on some 2,558 members of staff whose eligibility was contested, had approved payment to them and so they were being processed by the Controller and Accountant-General’s Department (CAGD) for payment.
The GES listed the details to include appointment letters, the assumption of duty letters and first pay slips, while those whose legacy arrears related to promotion were to provide promotion letters and payslips on which the first salaries on the promoted grade were paid.
“This approach has become necessary because the data available to the GES do not justify the payment of the legacy arrears to such people,” Prof. Opoku-Amankwa explained and expressed the hope that the measure would set the records straight and bring finality to the legacy arrears issue.
