The management of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) say they have collected about GH¢440 million as arrears from employers.

Speaking at a seminar in Kumasi, deputy director-general, operations and benefits, Mrs Laurette Korkor Otchere, noted that out of the amount collected, GH¢208.9 was retrieved through prosecution.
She also added, the Trust has the obligation to ensure employers pay SSNIT for its staff.
“We take no delight in taking an employer to court but we do have an obligation to pay retirement benefits to workers.
“And so, when you default in paying the contributions, these monies become debts, which we must collect,” he said.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that there was a bit of confusion at the Holy Ghost Revival Assemblies of God Church at South Odorkor as Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah met former President John Mahama on Sunday, December 1, 2019.
Both Mahama and Owusu Bempah had been invited by the church to grace their 30th-anniversary celebrations.
