Kumbungu District Education Rejects OSP Payroll Ghost Names

Officials of the Kumbungu District Directorate of Education have refuted allegations made by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and the Controller & Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) regarding a purported non-existent primary school in the district and the presence of “ghost names” on the Government of Ghana Payroll Administration.

In response to the findings that raised concerns about the existence of a primary school within the jurisdiction of the Ghana Education Service, the Directorate vehemently denies the allegations, asserting that all listed schools and staff members are legitimate entities actively operating in the district.

An officer from the Directorate told an Accra based radio station 3FM that the district comprises 89 kindergartens, 89 primary schools, and 33 junior high schools, all of which are fully functional.
