The issue of the 2022 (Agyenkwa) budget has become the talk of town in the whole country as at the moment. The day the budget was read to Parliament by the Finance Minister Hon. Ken Ofori Atta, many Ghanaians debated on it. Their main arguments was on the e-levy introduction that was part of the budget. While a section of Ghanaians seem to be in favour of the budget, another section seemed not to support it.
The budget, which was initially rejected last Friday November 26, 2021, has been approved but in the absence of MPs from the Minority side who declined to participate in the business of the day.
In the absence of the minority members of parliament, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta re-submitted a revised version of the 2022 Budget, which was unanimously approved by the Majority MPs including the first Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei Owusu.
Since the news broke out, Ghanaians have reacted to it. Some of them seem not to be surprised at all while others seem to be. Others also think the NPP government want to be autocratic. One person with the username _abena_ commented bu saying: ; what kind of autocratic party is this.? Ei NPP".
