Parliament has rejected the 2022 Budget presented before them by the Finance Minister a few days ago. The budget was received with mixed reactions by several sections of Ghanaians, which included the Abolishment of all Road Tolls, an increase in MoMo transfer fee which is the 1.75% E-Levy Tax, 15% Tax on government services and many others was the talk of town throughout the week. It is therefore no surprising that the budget has been rejected. With this, Ghanaians who were against the budget would surely breathe a sigh of relief.
Below are several tweets from some sections of Ghanaians.
Felix Owusu Kwaky @FelixKwakyeOfo1
"For the NPP, it is not the fact that they lost the motion to approve the budget, but the manner of the loss.Terrible strategy all round!"
"At the moment, we do not only need a new budget, we need a new Finance Minister. Elsewhere, he would have slapped in his resignation after this embarrassing rejection of his budget"
Edem Agbana @edemagbana
"The insensitive #2022 budget has been rejected. Kudos to the NDC MPs"
"NDC MPs killed the KILLER budget!!"
Johnny Hughes TBG @hughes_onair
"The 2022 budget has been rejected by the House after the Majority walked out. The walk out was inspired by a first time (back bencher) MP for Mpraeso". #Whew
"The Majority has walked out on their own budget? Sitting suspended for 5 minutes". #Whew®
@S_okudzetoAbiak (Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa)
"The NPP’s conduct in Parliament reminds me of football owners when we were kids, anytime they sense defeat, they grab the ball and call off the match. Our caucus remains absolutely determined to kill the killer budget".
Sammy Gyamfi @SammyGyamfi2007
"Cudos to the gallant 137 NDC MPs and their caucus leadership for choosing to stand with the Ghanaian people by rejecting the 2022 “Awudie” Budget Statement. We are proud of you"
Gabby Otchere-Darko @GabbyDarko had also tweeted that
"A topsy turvy legislature where the Opposition is determined to have their say and way, denying the nation revenues and shall in unison shout with pride and joy that they are rather for and with the people! All hail the Speaker! Sanity shall prevail. Ghana will win".
"Rejecting a national budget means for that budget year there will be no money to spend on anything by Government, including wages; no cash for roads, schools and hospitals. It means no show!"
