The Speaker of Parliament made some stark projections for which public sector workers may have to brace themselves.
According to Alban Bagbin, the government may struggle to honor some financial obligations including remuneration of employees in the next three months if critical steps are not taken.
“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.
He made this disclosure to Members of Parliament on Thursday, February 24, 2022.
It is unclear what constitutes this forecast as the Speaker fell short of giving further details of the “information at my disposal.”
But this comes amid ongoing consultation by the government to get the controversial Electronic Transfer Levy (E-Levy) bill passed, growing agitation within industrial unions over working conditions and calls for improved standards of living.
