Friday, July 06, 2018

Staff of the Social Security and Housing Finance Corporation (SSHFC) on Thursday began a sit-down-strike in respond to sending away a staff representative from a maiden meeting of the institution’s new board.

“The new chairman in Mr. Sheriff Jallow decided not to discuss the petition and made it an Agenda Point for deliberations,” said Momodou Camara, a chartered accountant and senior audit manager of the Corporation.

“The board decided to dwell on other infinitesimal issues instead of the substantive issue about the staff petition against the Mr. Manjang, the managing director, which is laden with corruption, per diem scandal, favouritism, abuse of office and others levied against him.”

Mr, Camara, who is also the SSHFC Staff rep at the board appealed for the Executive to intervene and solve the impasse for the betterment of The Gambia.
