Over 2000 students of Ghana’s Agriculture Colleges stand the risk of being arrested by officials of National Security for failing to refund allowances overpaid them by the Controller and Accountant General.
The students were paid an amount of GHc 9, 000 after protesting delays in the payment of their allowance.
They were subsequently ordered to refund the amount after another sum of GHc 11, 000 was mistakenly paid into their accounts by the Controller General.
The students say they are unable to refund the amount.
Spokesperson for the affected students, Andrews Dawuni , who is with the Veterinary College in Tamale said students were notified that they had been overpaid three weeks after they had resumed school.
“Over the holidays, Controller made a payment of over 11,000 Cedis into our respective accounts. Then three weeks later, school authorities alerted us that we had been overpaid. We have been asked to refund the monies.”
A letter from the Food and Agriculture Ministry indicated that the “amount involved in the over-payment should be refunded and paid back to the Bank of Ghana Suspense Account by Monday 28th March, 2016.”
“It should be noted that it is illegal and criminal for the students to continue to keep the monies. The monies belong to the Government of Ghana,” it added.
All affected students will attract the following sanctions if they fail to refund the monies by Monday March, 28, 2016
Students will not be admitted to class with effect from Tuesday 29th March, 2016
Any student who fails to attend classes for twenty days ceases to be a student and is summarily dismissed
The National Security has been informed to arrest all affected students from Tuesday 29th March, 2016.
The photographs and contact addresses of all affected students will be forwarded to the Head of Civil Service in Accra.
Sad Day As Ghanaians Bid Ebony Reigns Goodbye Forever
Today, March 24, 2018, will go down as one of the saddest days in the life of some Ghanaians, and the Ghana Music Industry.
The late Ebony Reigns will be laid to rest today at the Osu Cemetery after a funeral service to be held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Ghanaians will miss the 20-year-old musician who took the music industry by storm within a spate of two years.
Her hit songs ‘Maame Hw3’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Sponsor’, and the many others are still enjoying massive airplay.
Despite all the controversies that surrounded her short but successful career, Ebony was focused, and never shifted from her career dream. Who would not miss Ebony?
She died painfully on February 8, 2018, on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway in a gory accident which also claimed the lives of her bodyguard, and personal assitant.
Meanwhile, the bodyguard, Lance Corporal Vondee Francis Atsu, was buried yesterday, March 23, 2018 in Mafi Adidome, in the Volta Region.
Franky Kuri was buried earlier in March.
