President Nana Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has ordered the immediate suspension of the use of the Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) platform, to administer the payroll of the Ghana Education Service (GES) staff.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante and addressed to the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, it said the suspension follows the recent agitations by teachers unions in connection with the payroll related issues.

“The President says the suspension of GES staff from HRMIS should hold until such a time that all issues relating to its use are resolved,” the statement added.

The National Association of Graduate Teachers declared a strike last week over the Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) which they said they were having issues with.
