He said: “There is a need for massive recruitment of workers in our state now so that the new people can understudy those who are leaving.

“By early next year, at least 85 percent of the workforce in the state’s civil service will be leaving and so there is an urgent need for massive recruitment.

“My administration has been able to create an Independent economy that needs to be sustained.”
