Government of Ghana has secured a five-year facility to support the works of the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS).
Budgetary allocation to Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) has been a challenge over the years due to the country’s financial constraints.
According to government statistician, Prof. Samuel Kobina Annim, in an interview with Citi FM monitored by ghgossip.com,he indicated the facility will help support the core business Ghana Statiscal Service(GSS).
“The government has secured a facility to support our core businesses and this facility will take us through 2020 to 2024. But we are quick to indicate that, we need to start having discussions on what happens post-2024 because this is not the first time we are having such a facility but any time the facility runs out, we go through a grave period of financial difficulties especially those to pay our data collection personnel”, he noted.
