Teachers at Kpandai in the Northern Region have been abandoning the classrooms to chase their locked up salaries from GN Savings and Loans.
Some of the angry teachers said they have to trek several miles to Salaga, the closest branch of the Savings and Loans company just to be told that they can’t access their monies.
The teachers are saying very soon, they will abandon the classrooms entirely as according to them, they have not been able to access their salaries for the past four months.
GN Savings and Loans over the previous months had struggled to honour deposit withdrawals. Some of them really turned nasty, with some of their customers pitching camp at their banking halls, until their deposits are paid to them.
The institution had earlier requested the Bank of Ghana to approve its reclassification into a savings and loans, which was done January this year.
GN Savings and Loans had maintained that the move would have little impact on its operations going forward.
But the teachers are insisting they have not been able to access their monies for the past four months and will not hesitate abandoning the classroom to chase monies paid them by government if the Savings and Loans Company fails to do the ‘right’ thing.
