Ndeysaan….President Barrow’s Salary Schedule to be increase.
The President’s salary is scheduled to be increased by over D1million in fiscal 2019 from these estimates . His six special advisers are also scheduled to go from a combined salary of D887994 to a whopping D2,315,988 for six people including what they are calling deputy special advisers . This administration has gone absolutely crazy and are steeped in the horrible yahya jammeh ways of playing with the treasury of the Gambian people . What advise are these people giving that is worth a monthly salary of such an obscene amount at a time when the government should be tightening its belt .Just the unjustified upward increase of the salaries of the President and the 38 people that serve as his immediate staff has doubled from about D5million 2018 to nearly D10 in 2019 . This does not include what they are calling responsibility allowance as additional emolument to some of the same immediate staff which amounts to an additional D1.5 million appropriately.This is unconscionable and MPs should refuse to go along . The president needs to lead by example and not fleece taxpayers when he is leading a poor and struggling nation .
