According to him, “Our plea is for the government to give us what I call a salary holiday for just six months. That is taking over the payment of staff salaries for that during and let him come and see what we can do with it.
“But I tell you with that action, we will transform this institution further beyond imagination. Such ‘rebates’ will be a game changer for us.”
