Gov’t To Use GH-Dual Card To Fight Ghost Names — Dr. Bawumia

As part of government’s efforts to rid its payroll of ghost names, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has said public workers will soon be required to obtain the new biometric GH-Dual Card which combines the functions of e-zwich and gh-link payment systems.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia who made this known at the launch of the GH Dual Card by the Ghana Interbank Payment and Settlement System (GhIPSS) said the initiative will ensure accountability and transparency in the public sector.

“The biometric features of the card makes it ideal for public sector payment as it is able to eliminate ghost workers. So, to eliminate the phenomenon of ghost workers once and for all, we are going to require that all government workers will also be paid through the filter of e-zwich or Gh Dual Card,” the Vice President stated.
