Gov’t may not be able to pay salaries in the next 3 months – Speaker Bagbin

The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin has predicted that government may not be able  honor some financial obligations including payment of salaries of public sector workers in the next three months if necessary steps are not taken.
 
For this, public sectors may have to ready themselves to experience further financial burdens than they already are experiencing.

 

 “This is not to discourage the committee from doing their work. If something is not done within the next three months, the government may not be able to even pay salaries,” he said.

 

 

This was disclosed to Members on the floor on Thursday, February 24, 2022.

 

Mr. Speaker, however, did not give reasons behind his forecast and did not explain further information he said was at his disposal.
