Edudzi Tamakloe has raised questions about the justification of the majority in parliament in respect of the approval of the 2022 budget. On this morning's Good Morning Ghana show on Metro TV, the two "faced off" together with the host, Dr Randy Abbey to discuss today's action of parliament towards voting on the budget.
While Dr Kingsley Nyarko raised some reasons why there is the need to approve the budget, citing some educational facilities that have been proposed, with the STEM schools under way, and the need to provide other projects for all constituents, among others, he continued to urge Edudzi Tamakloe to inform his minority leader and all the members to approve the budget for God to bless them.
However, Mr Edudzi Tamakloe raised a number of things this government has been inconsistent with in the past and currently. With focus on the exorbitant government spending during the the peak of the covid 19 pandemic but could not account for, he made mention of the spending on PPE's for schools alone. "You spend Gh¢ 600 million on PPE's for schools alone, how can you justify this? If it were your own money, would you use it like that?", Edudzi Tamakloe questioned Kingsley Nyarko. He further expressed that government has not convinced the minority enough to approve the budget.
