As Salary Disparity Takes Over MoF Dresses SALPOST In Borrowed Robes
Reliable sources have updated this Press that the Ministry of Finance ( MoF) has conditioned a bailout of Le1 Billion, which is barely six months salaries for only existing junior staff. The bone of contention is the fact that the huge backlog of retirees, deceased who passed away in active services, with senior employees have not yet settled and the amount under consideration will not be sufficed to meet those outstanding financial obligations.
It was bitterly revealed to Sierra Express Media that there is a huge margin between the salaries of the newly appointed Managing Director and that of the suppressed Deputy Managing Director. We were told that the politically motivated MD takes $5,000.00, which is approximately Le45 million, whilst the DMD takes only a meager Le3.2 million home.
This medium was categorically acquainted that such deliberate act has some political undertone and that the MD is allegedly a staunch member of the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) whilst the DMD has been accused to be a sympathizer of the main opposition party, All Peoples Congress (APC). “Administratively, this is a complete mismatch and a mere attempt to demotivate the DMD to quit the office, which he is diligently serving. No, no, no this margin is too much and it is very alarming”, uttered an authentic correspondent.
Based on our findings, the following recommendations were made:
They preferred the Government of Sierra Leone, through MoF to handle salary payments in respect of the institution. Lastly, they are urging Government to enact the Postal Bill through the Well of Parliament, in order to enhance easy communication amongst Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and to raise huge revenue for SALPOST.
