Per the figure, it means each Member of staff took home 6,250 Ghana Cedis per month or 75 thousand Ghana Cedis for 2018.

The figures are captured in the 2018/2019 budget statement of GNAT.

Bismark Kobina Ebo Yankson, a GNAT member who is disgruntled about the absolute rip off of their funds by the leadership of the Association said he and his other aggrieved colleagues will do all they can to ensure that those responsible for such obnoxious spending are brought to book.
