President John Mahama has directed that anyone found to have created 'ghost names' in the public sector payroll will be prosecuted.

President John Mahama speaking at the opening of the 2nd national forum on the Single Spine Pay policy in Takoradi on Friday said, some of the ghosts are real ghosts and occur inadvertently, but there are some of the ghosts who are man-made and they are intentionally resurrected on the payroll.

“I’ve asked that for the ghosts that are man-made, the human creators of these ghosts, when discovered, should be prosecuted.

“Where persons, who have engaged in impropriety have been found out like in the National Service Scheme, we will ensure prosecution if those people are caught. We expect that organised labour will be a partner in this fight.”

“Some of the ghost are real ghost and occur inadvertently but there are some of the ghosts who are man-made and they are intentionally resurrected on the payroll.”
