There is growing resentment among the rank and file of the Ghana Police Service following a drastic drop in their December salaries.
The difference in salaries barely two weeks after the December 7, 2020 general elections is fuelling rumours that the recent upward adjustment in their salary was rose to possibly influence them ahead of the general elections.
Many of them are already protesting on social media platforms with varied comments expressing anger, regret and with some saying they have been taken for granted.
One comment read, “December is here ,and as usual ,government workers would be taken salaries earlier than usual , what the officers are saying is that ,Salary adjustments announced in November and paid successfully are nowhere to be found , It has flipped , flopped and disappeared subsequently”
In November, barely a month to the December 7 elections rumours were rife that the over 23,000 personnel of the Service for example had been surprised with over 100% pay rise across board.
