The Ghana National Association of Teachers has inaugurated a new board of trustees to administer Tier-3 Contributions of members.

The Minister for Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour Awuah when swearing them in, charged the Board of Trustees for the provident fund cautioned them “not to misapply the contributions of members but rather ensure” its judicious management.

Swearing in the new trustees, the sector minister noted, the misuse of such contributions is an offence. Under the National Pensions Act 766, beneficiaries are to make compulsory contributions to the first and second tiers.

The Board of Trustees is Chaired by Ransford Kofi Nsiah Lolih with Thomas Musah, Victor DeGraft Etsison, Peter Obeng Nyamekye, Helen Asantewaa, Daniel Tomey, Isaac Baah and Philip Dela Zumanu.

President of GNAT, Rev. Isaac Owusu noted, “it is important that the newly inaugurated board works in the interest of GNAT”.

He added, “with an association that has a membership of over 200,000, having only 10,000 of them covered by the GNAT Provident Fund is not acceptable”; thus encouraging them to help convince members to contribute to the Fund and enhance its growth.

He assured all members of GNAT about the commitment of elected National Officers and Administrators in this “endeavor because neither me as President or the General Secretary have any other interest but to see to the development of our great association,” he added.
