Usually, the districts, municipal and metropolitan areas are developed with budgetary allocations to the MMDAs. Today, the Deputy Finance Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Ejisu constituency, has revealed that the government will slash or reduce the budgetary allocation to the MMDAs by 20%. His reason being that, the e-levy bill passage has been delayed, and also the reversal of the benchmark values has also been delayed.
Reacting to that, many Ghanaians marveled at how this government, within short notice has slashed and discounted the budgetary allocations to many fields. One classical example is the allocation to the Black Stars which many claims is an attributory factor to their poor and incompetent play.
Kabiru Mohammed, in the spirit of patriotism, questioned Honorable John Kumah as to why the ministry has not planned on slashing the budgetary allocation to the Presidency. This is a very important question that must be answered by our politicians. This is because, although both major political parties complain that the economy is hard, yet they increase their salaries and allowances at the expense of the sufferings of Ghanaians.
