QUESTION OF THE DAY

The written introductory statement delivered by the Vice President relating to the Public Service Pension Bill is different from her oral presentation when it comes to the sum to be generated from 5 percent civil servants contribution .In her oral presentation at the National Assembly, she mentioned 173.6 Billion Dalasis but the written statement reveals 173.6 Million Gambian Dalasis. The Office of the Vice President has been contacted and it is confirmed that the figure recorded and reported by the Foroyaa journalist is a slip of the tongue. The correct figure is GMD 173.6 Million.
