Togo spent CFA55Bln on state personnel in Q1 2022, up 9% YoY

(Togo First) - The State of Togo spent CFA55 billion on personnel expenses in Q1 2022, against CFA50 billion in Q1 2021. This was revealed in the Ministry of Economy’s "State Budget Execution Report, Fiscal Year 2022 - End of March".

In detail, the funds were used to pay emoluments, allowances, bonuses, family benefits, employer contributions, and all staff expenses covered by the general budget.

Year on year, the spending was up by 9.08% which, according to the report, could be due to an increase in the number of civil servants over the period under review. In the first quarter of this year alone, this number rose from 54,071 to 54,316. 

Also, throughout the year ended on March 31, 2022, a thousand medical, paramedical, and administrative staff has been recruited.

It should be noted that this year's budget law provides for 253 billion CFA francs to be spent on personnel.
