Govt rejects claims of inability to pay salaries


Deputy Secretary of Finance John Ampontua Kuma denies allegations that the government may not be able to pay salaries  in the coming months did. Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin told Congress last week about information he showed that the government may not be able to pay civil servants if important decisions are not made. 

 However, Mr. Kuma, who is also a member of parliament (MP) of Egis, refuted this claim. He said the government could pay workers during the Covid 19 pandemic and would continue to respect its commitment to civil servants. "That's not true, even when COVID19 struck the country and we were struggling as a country, we were still able to pay all civil servants on time," he said. .. 

 "Workers were paid on time in January of this year. Workers should not be afraid because they want to be paid on time in February," he assured. According to him, the Speaker of Parliament has made a real call to all Parliamentarians to support the government's domestic revenue mobilization program, especially investigations, across parliaments. 

 "I think the chair has called on all parliamentarians in great faith to move Congress across parties and support the government's revenue mobilization program, especially investigations, and it will be very difficult  for the government. It does not impose any financial constraints. "Deputy Minister was optimistic that the economy would not deteriorate to the point where the government could not pay civilians.
