Rejection Of 2022 Budget Will Affect The Country – Ahanta West MP Cries Out

Parliamentarian (MP) Ebenezer Kojo Kum of the Western Region's Ahanta West Constituency has indicated that rejecting the 2022 budget will put the country's growth on hold. As per the Ahanta West MP, the budget contributes to the growth of all countries.

This same rejection of the budget, according to Hon Ebenezer Kojo Kum on Dadi FM's "Efa Wo Ho" morning show, will make paying public wages difficult. According to Hon Ebenezer Kojo Kum, every Member of Parliament has a mission to guarantee that the parliament's choices are impacted.

"Without a budget, the nation cannot pay civil and public employees," he told Abena Pokua Ahwenee. All 137 Opposition Parliamentarians (MPS) ended up voting even against the resolution when the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, raised the question.

The Majority Caucus had already stormed out of the Chamber due to a disagreement with the Speaker.

Prior to actually voting to reject the budget statement, the House voted to reject the Finance Minister's request to withhold votes on the budget to allow for more consultation with the Majority and Minority leadership, particularly on the Electronic Levy (E-Levy) and a request to include the Blekusu Sea Defense Project in the budget.
