In the months ahead, due priority will be given to the proposed “pay and pension reform”, President Yahya Jammeh announced on Sunday.
Speaking on the eve of his July22 Coup Anniversary, 19 years on, he added: “… and the implementation of civil service revolving loan scheme.”
The scheme is aimed at boosting staff morale and improving on retention strategies, according to Jammeh, who seized power in a bloodless military coup on July 22, 1994.
“Importantly for us all, we should not allow the achievements of the public service in the socio-economic advancement of this country to be derailed at the altar of foreign value systems passing off for modernity and freedom,” he said.
Many of the working class in the civil service still struggle to make ends meet with meager earnings.
