Lecturers in various public universities may have to forfeit their July salaries as the deadline given to universities to migrate onto a new payment program by government has expired.

The IPPD3 payment program is to ensure government continues to provide subventions to the universities.

President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Dr. Samuel Ofori- Bekoe, reacting to this on Starr News stated that the lecturers will advise themselves if government carries through with the decision not to pay their salaries at the end of this month. According to him, the ministry of finance has not honoured any of the requests they have sent.

“Government is asking the universities to submit their recruitment needs to the finance ministry for financial clearance before recruiting but the experience is that in the past all the requests that we have submitted to the finance ministry, none of them have been honoured.

“As we speak, nobody has come to replace the lecturers who have retired and those who have left because of this policy and the situation is putting a lot of strain on our members,” he said.
