CLOGSAG demands compliance 
Meanwhile, the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) is demanding compliance by the office of the Controller and Accountant General in the payment.

Executive Secretary of CLOGSAG, Isaac Bampoe Addo maintained that though the association admits that there have not been any changes to the schedule, it, however, expects the Controller and Accountant General's Department to be true to its words.

“All these years, it is a routine circular and they have always complied with their schedule. We have not experienced any delay. But should there be any issue, they should call all the stakeholders to resolve it. “
