These new directives come after the successful linking of the NIA database with the GOG National Payroll Database.

Earlier this month the government launched a fully automated system linking the national payroll with the Ghana Card database, making the use of the Ghana Card mandatory for recruits, re-verification of existing employees, and pensioners on the government’s payroll system.

Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, who launched the system, emphasized that the new system leverages digitalization to fight corruption, exposing discrepancies quickly through an interoperable ecosystem.
