The Rt. Hon. Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin in the closing stages of parliamentary sitting on Thursday 24 February, made a revelation to the House about the risk of the government not being able to pay salaries within the next three (3) months if something drastic doesn’t happen. According to the Speaker, information at his disposal indicates that the government may not be able to pay salaries in the coming months. 

The Speaker in making the disclosure hastened to add that, he did not share the information to discourage the parliamentary select committees from doing their work. Rather, to urge the house about the need to take action.
