Decentralized Controller biometric offices to every region in the north–Aggrieved teachers lament


Decentralized Controller and Accountant General in charge of biometric offices to every region in the north-aggrieved teachers lament

Decentralization is one of the serious problems facing most of the public sector in the country. One would have asked what it will cost the government or even the institutions involved in this regrettable experience to decentralize the biometric office.

It is still awkward that in this 21st century, teachers from all northern parts of Ghana will all travel from their various regions to Tamale just to go through comptroller Biometric process.

Some of these teachers even had to travel one day ahead to enable them get a sleeping place to rent at either a guest house or hotel which comes with another stress and cost.

As if that is not enough, teachers after passing through all this stress, also end up paying some amount before going through the biometric process.

Some weeks ago, there was an attack on Tamale- Walewale road which was reported across the most credible platforms in the country. Some of the victims were teachers traveling to Tamale from Bolga to pass through their biometric process.

Authorities responsible must do something urgent by way of decentralizing the controller biometric offices across the 5 northern regions to reduce pressure on innocent teachers.

The education ministry should save the lives of its employees by engaging those responsible as far as the decentralization of controller biometric offices is concerned.
