November 17, 2021

The Finance Minister, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta would today Wednesday, November 17, 2021 presents the 2022 annual budget estimate and policy of government today.

The program is expected to begin at 10:00 am soon after the House is done with its preliminary activities in the order of proceedings.

When caught up with MPs from the Majority side of the House, they spoke in favour of the finance minister presenting a budget to address current economic issues, in the era of COVID-19 pandemic.

Whiles the Minority MPs were of the view that Ghanaians are already under excruciating economic hardship, and it would be out of place to introduce more taxes to burden them, more especially when workers’ salary has not seen any significant increment.

Both sides, however, agree that government would have to be prudent in its expenditure by prioritizing things that are of utmost importance and avoid wastage.
