Member of Parliament for Adaklu, Governs Kwame Agbodza is hopeful the two days post budget workshop being organised in Ho, the Volta Regional capital would equip MPs to better debate the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy.
According to him he is hopeful to learn a lot as he does not understand certain things in the budget and for the first time as Ranking on Roads and Transport, they are going to demand detailed expenditure of everything they had approved in the 2021 budget; how they were spent, before giving approval for a new spending in 2022.
“I do not understand how we spent six hundred million on veronica bucket and sanitizers during COVID; I still cannot get my head around it, the specific Committee that dealt with it should break it down for us to know”.
Again, he pointed out that they approve some amount of money for road work they have to find out how that money was used and why they should approve a new one as they want every Ghanaian to understand what they are doing.
“Ghanaians currently feel we just go and talk and they say, all those in favour we say yeah, yeah, and we go away, that is not good for our democracy”.
