Pro-Temp Findley  Constraints imposed on economy  by Ebola  affecting increment in Civil Servants’ Salaries

MONROVIA, November 26 (LINA) - The President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate, Gbehzongar Findley, has said increment in civil servants' salaries is not realistic due to constraints imposed on the economy by the Ebola virus.

He observed that salary increment must be supported by stability in revenue collections which, he noted, has experienced a serious drop due to the Ebola epidemic that broke out in March.

Findley made the statement at his Capitol Building office shortly after the Senate’s closed door meeting Tuesday.

“The budget is really tight. Ebola has cut into revenue collection, so we want to be careful in increasing recurrent costs,” Findley asserted.
