“The 70% of the cost of the laptop is being borne by the government of Ghana.”

“These deductions, per the letters we received were as a result of agreements between the Ghana Education Service and the various teacher unions.

“The Controller and Accountant-General will NOT unilaterally effect deductions from salaries without the necessary authorisation.”

Mr Kwaning-Bosompem assured all government employees that they will paid what is legitimately due them.
