The Members of Parliament (MPs) are unhappy over the delay of their February salaries.

In an interview with Accra-based Starr FM, the MPs said the delay in salaries is becoming the trend now.

Asuogyaman MP Ampem Nyarko said that “There is a particular trend that has started over the last couple of months that is getting most of us worried and the trend is that when the month ends we don’t see our salaries.”

“The last month we received our salaries on the 10th and this month, today is 2nd and there is no sign of us getting our salaries and we are worried, every MP is complaining.”

He added that this had nothing to do with politics since every parliamentarian is complaining.

“Trust me this is not about those on the left, every MP is complaining except some of them are unable to voice out. It is a very serious thing that is happening to us.”

He said the delay in payment of their salary is putting undue pressure on them since they are expected to be in their constituencies for the celebration of 6th March parade.

“You plan your finances and you don’t know what to do again. We are going into our constituencies for 6th March, a lot of expenditure ahead of us and nothing showing in our Bank accounts.”

Meanwhile the MP for Buem, Daniel Kwasi Ashiamah said that this is a worrying trend. He added that most of them would be affected if they are not paid by close of day today.

“Today is Friday and I am going home to meet my constituents and Tuesday will be 6th March and I have not been paid, I have not been paid, that is the matter…and there is no money in my pocket.”
