The Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry Dr. Stephen Amoah has taken a swipe at the Minority for the cancellation of allowances for poor teachers and nursing trainees even though they are social democrats.

The lawmaker noted that the NDC always deceive Ghanaians by saying that the NPP has borrowed so much yet they borrowed one billion dollars quietly under former President John Dramani Mahama; and “with the agreement that they were not paying until 2028/2029 which means that the current debt of Ghana is included in that one billion dollars the NDC left”.

Again, how many of the Minority MPs would want their children to ride commercial motorbike after school and it is their flagship program for Ghanaians; “yes we know there is hardship but it’s global.”

Mr Stephen when he took his turn to debate the 2024 budget also noted that anywhere in the world budget statements focus on fiscal space and it was after 2022 that we saw the impact of post COVID-19 growth to GDP was around 258 percent but he stands to be corrected.
