MInority Leader

Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu said Ghana’s finance minister Ken Ofori Atta would go down the Guineas book of record under the fourth Republic of Ghana as the most borrowing Minister of finance when he seconded motion for adjournment on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

According to him with the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy presented by the sector Minister, Ghanaians would not be able to bear the hardship they are already enduring. “The system is hot and it’s only Ofori Atta who ironically reduces hardship and suffering by imposing taxes”, he said.

Again, the one point seven (1.7) momo and electronic tax targeted at raising fifteen (15) billion Ghana cedis would worsen the already hardship of the people. More importantly, he said the e-transaction levy would reverse the gains of financial inclusion.

“Mr. Speaker we are not in a hast to debate him, when you project revenue from 53 billion to 80 billion within one year, the market and Ghanaians have listen to you, this budget does not end any suffering of Ghanaians”.
