Minority Leader welcomes Finance Minister Amendment on Volta Roads

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu has welcomed the moves taken by the Finance Minister Ken Ofori Atta to correct the omission of the Volta Region in critical roads to be considered in next year’s budget.
 
According to the Minority, it took the intervention of the Minority Volta caucus for the Finance Minister to do the needful.

He noted that it is appropriate and legitimate for the Finance Minister to do the right thing, because the Volta Region notwithstanding, the constitution of Ghana the standing orders of the House deserved to be respected.

“Is it not an afterthought, how do we add the amendment to the appendix you presented, we would look at the substance, and we of this House would monitor religiously?”

 “Mr. Speaker I was in the Volta Region with the President at Hohoe, I met him on the way, and if you look at how he was dancing on the road because of the nature of the road, we look forward for the debate on the budget”.
