NPP MP's to boycott 2023 budget if Ken is not sacked


We are not in  normal times as the world suffers an economic crisis but Ghana has been worse of it all. Ghana in every blessed day have it cedi depreciate to the dollar, this has pump up prices of goods and services. Ghanaians have made some allegations against the financial minister to be poor manager of the economy and so should be impeach. Majority MPs in Parliament have threatened to boycott the reading of the 2023 budget if Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta is not sacked. Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, the NPP lawmakers stated that they are displeased with the management of the economy under Ken Ofori-Atta.

“We have made our great concern to the President through the Parliamentary leadership and the leadership of the party without any positive response. We are by this medium communicating our strong desire that the President changes the Minister of Finance and the Minister of State in the Finance Ministry without any further delays, in order to restore hope into the financial sector and reverse the downward trend in the growth of the economy”, MP for Asante Akim North, Andy Appiah-Kubi said.

The legislator continued, “Meanwhile we want to serve notice, and notice is hereby served that until such persons as aforementioned are made to resign or removed from office, we members of the majority caucus here in Parliament will not participate in any business of government by or for the President by any other minister. We hope that those of us [at] the backbench and members of the majority caucus will abide by this prayer. We are saying that if our request is not responded to positively, we will not be present for the budget hearing, neither will we participate in the debate and any business the government will bring to parliament”.
