The Speaker of Parliament made some stark projections for which public sector workers may have to brace themselves.
According to Alban Bagbin, government may struggle to honour 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.”
Speaking on the floor, Mr Bagbin urged the MPs to exhibit leadership towards augmenting the oncoming challenge in remuneration.
“So we have to take leadership. We have to do a lot of things,” he encouraged.
