The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has hit out at Parliamentary Service staff who do very little but receive salaries from the state.
According to him, a significant number of the staff are contributing nothing, yet are paid at the end of every month.
He noted that a lack of monitoring and supervision by managers of various units in Parliament has aided in the current dire situation.
“This board must work collectively to improve upon the work ethics of staff. It is a fact that there some staff members are hardworking and giving off their best for Parliament but it is equally true that there is a significant number whose contribution is nothing to write home about,” Mr. Bagbin said, as quoted by Myjoyonline.
“Indeed there are some who basically have no schedule and virtually do nothing yet are paid by the state every month, this I think must change if we want to be a module parliament in Africa.”
The Parliamentary Service Board is tasked with promoting the welfare of Members of Parliament and Staff of the Service.
The Board is made up of the Speaker, Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu.
Other members are former Majority Leader Abraham Aidoo and General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
