The Controller and Accountant General Department of Ghana in June, 2018 deducted all teachers in Ghana an amount of Gh¢ 10.00 for State Insurance Company (SIC) purported to be an insurance policy deduction arranged between the Ghana Education Service and SIC without prior notification to the teachers concerned. 

This is fraudulent and out of place due to the following:

1. Most of the affected teachers already have existing policies with the said SIC and thus cannot be coerced into taken another one against their wish.

2. The processes were not earlier discussed with the affected teachers.

3. The actions of GES, SIC and CAGD is against the fundamental human rights of the affected teachers as it kicks against their freedom of association because no one can be forced under the laws of Ghana to join any scheme or insurance they do not wish to join. 

4. The processes seem fraudulent as it is a plain methodology for some few people to gather monies of the already suffering teachers using SIC as a cover up so they can further use for their personal gains.


We therefore call for an immediate halt of the entire insurance policy and for a refund of all monies deducted in June, 2018 because SIC is an open-for-all company where anyone willing to take an insurance policy can walk in and take it. 

We want action now or head to the law courts to seek redress.
