He continued that the proposal is waiting for approval from the Ministry of Education. This decision is in line with complaints from service personnel who claim the constant rise in the cost of living has taken a toll on them.
The personnel allowance, which was increased from GH350 to GH559 in 2017, is due to an increment considering the current economic hardship. The percentage of the amount to be increased is not revealed. 2rvisionnews.com will update its audience as long as any decisions are made on this.
