Today, Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta will present the 2022 budget on the floor of parliament. Many Ghanaians have expressed what they expect from the budget while other intellects have predicted that, instead of tax reliefs, the people of Ghana should expect new heavy taxes.
Today, Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority leader of Parliament who doubles as the Member of Parliament for the Tamale South constituency, boldly predicted his expectation of the 2022 budget.
"Nobody should expect anything better or assuring either than increased hardship in the country. Nobody should expect anything either than to inflict economic pain. This government rowed on the back of Ghanaians with the pledge and promise to reduce the suffering of Ghanaians.
"You can go to their manifesto of 2016. Today, they will only exasperate the hardship, suffering, taxes, and growing unemployment", he added.
Haruna Iddrisu called on Ghanaians not to expect much since "Krom ay3 shi". He later called on the Vice President to stop certain acts like cheering the Finance Minister since according to him, cheapens the office of the Vice President.
"Vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia will have to stop cheapening the Office of the Vice President by being a cheer vice president of the finance minister. That is profoundly wrong", he explained.
This statement from Haruna Iddrisu got Ghanaians to massively react. Mr. Abdul Waleem expressed surprise at Haruna Iddrisu's statement after five years of silence on this issue. He assumed that because Haruna Iddrisu had heard that the Vice President will not be present that was why he was raising that issue. Others also criticized Haruna Iddrisu and described him as a jealous man.
