May Day Celebration Thanksgiving Service By Civil And Local Government Staff Association  Ghana (CLOGSAG),Was Held On Saturday 1st May, 2021.At CLOGSAG  Auditorium.Accra Ghana. 

Mr. Isaac bampoe Addo ,executive director secretary in his presentation, said. "Association appreciates the commitment of President Nana Addo

Dankwa Akufo Addo to decentralization and his desire to have District

Chief Executives elected.Though laudable and must be supported to

become a reality, CLOGSAG believes that election of District Chief

Executives must be devoid of partisanship. The partisanship nature of

our elections has encouraged people to look at issues from political

party perspective and CLOGSAG is of the opinion that neutrality is a solution to this myopic and divisive approach.

"Our investigation has revealed that SSNIT has been placed under the

Financial Services Division of the Ministry of Finance.

However, the National Pensions Act, 2008 (Act 766) and Occupational

and Pension Schemes. (General) regulations, 2011 (L.I. 1990) clearly

show that the Minister of Employment and Labour Relations is the

Minister for Pensions.

For the avoidance of the doubt, Sections 13 and 211".Mr.Isaac Bampoe said. 

"It is evident from the foregoing that the Minister for Employment and

Labour Relations is the Minister for Pensions.

Any supervisory role the Ministry of Finance is playing in relation to

SSNIT apart from determining allowances for Board members and

committee members is not supported by Act 766 and, therefore,

anomalous or illegal.

CLOGSAG is serving notice that should this anomaly persist, the

Association would not only petition the Speaker of Parliament but use

other legitimate means to stop this practice".
