Gov’t urges civil servants to ignore “memo” trending on social media

Mar 30, 2022, 1:08 PM

The Gambia Government wishes to inform all Civil Servants that a memo trending on Social Media on purported rescheduling of the new pay and grading scale to 1st January 2023, is grossly false and misleading, designed to cause anxiety and disgust among the population.

Civil Servants are particularly urged to ignore this repugnant memo intended to demoralise a hardworking and patriotic workforce that deserves nothing less than the best. The Gambia Government remains resolute in improving the welfare of all citizens and ever since coming to office that has been the priority of President Adama Barrow and his Government.

Accordingly, citizens are advised to desist from the misuse of letterheads, logos and insignia of The State House, Ministries, Government Departments and State Agencies.
