The economic situation of the country is very difficult and is not up to any further tampering with the country’s savings eroding, said Sanalla, calling for stopping disinformation and educating the people about the scale of the problem and pointing out that the state economy and salaries of workers come only from oil.
Sanalla also expressed his surprise by the statements made by MP Fathi Al-Mujbri about the marginalization of the eastern region, pointing out that Al-Mujbri is the head of the financial arrangements committee, which is responsible for every penny spent in Libya. If there is marginalization, he is responsible for it, said the NOC chairman.
