He said:

"I heard from the opposition that they are going to fire the workers. They say so because they have nothing to campaign for again. Little did they know that firing workers is much more expensive than keeping them. I think I am not getting paid.

"We don't do that. It's a simple idea. But I have to go to the Treasury because I have to pay the same 50 pensions and bonuses. This is in addition to the social impact.

"If you fire an employee, he may only save 30%, but you'll be claiming pensions and bonuses again. It's cheaper to keep an officer than to fire him. So, it's not on our agenda. It does not benefit us or society, as every household has at least one civil servant. We do not lay off workers. We are determined to improve your well-being instead.
