In an interview with the leader, Norbert Gborgbortsi, on Akoma Fm, the leader angrily stated “there is no equity and fairness in the recent salary increment.”

“How can others receive a 79 percent increase and we the taxpayers will only see a 4 percent surge?” he asked.

The low percentage of the increment, he said, is to allow for the government to employ over one million workers into the public service.

Gborgbortsi added: “We have already petitioned Parliament, nothing new has come up. So, we have notified the police about our intention to hit the streets so every arrangement is in line so government must expect our demonstration because with all the additional tax introduced this year only 4 percent has been added to our salaries. It’s nothing good to write home about.”
