The boss of policy think tank IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, says he is worried ministers of state have not been paid for nearly six months.

“These appointees need to eat and feed their dependents, he said. "It is not enough to say they are getting by through the grace of God and friends."

He continued: "I worry when politicians work for free. We will have to assess the reasons for the disturbing revenue performance vis-à-vis the overall revenue maximisation strategy of the government and offer helpful solutions."

He made the comments after the Minister for Information, Mustapha Hamid, revealed that ministers have been working for six months without pay.

Speaking on TV3'S "Big Issue" Saturday, Mr Hamid said steps are being taken to address the situation.

He said: “I guess that the processes for getting these things done takes time. You know the whole processes about Controller and Accountant General and all those things and so on.

”I mean, it has become a phenomenon. It is not a very good phenomenon in country that people are employed and after one year they are not taking salaries and so on. It happens to teachers, nurses and so on.
