The Ministry of Finance has dismissed reports in the media that a moratorium has been imposed on all agency recruitment.
The publications are claimed to be misleading and should be removed.
The leaks, which were based on a supposedly official statement from the ministry, were an effort by the unscrupulous to create mischief, according to a statement released by the Finance Ministry on Tuesday, April27, 2021.
The statement was widely circulated on social media on Monday, with some news organizations publishing articles based on it. However, the ministry claims it did not author it, and therefore its content cannot be credited to it or taken as true.
“We want to reassure all stakeholders that the Ministry is committed to delivering on its mandate through the 2021 Budget and the Ghana CARES program to ensure rapid economic recovery and systemic economic transformation,” the statement continued.
