The total amount of money to be paid before tax is Le5.2 billion for 67 staff of former SALCAB and all of them signed off their payment slips.

Chairman SorieFofanah admonished the ex-staff to be hopeful and assured them that their skills will definitely hand them another job.

The Acting Director of Communications in the Ministry of Information and Communications Mr. MuminiJalloh informed all ex staff who are in possession of properties belonging to government to return then and that payment will only be made to them after delivery of government property.

The program was climaxed by ex-staff signing off their end of service benefits form.
