Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta delivers 2022 mid-year budget review

A former Chairman of Parliament’s Finance Committee has stated what Ghanaians should expect in the the 2023 budget to be presented by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.

According to Dr Assibey Yeboah, the citizenry will be happy if the budget restored micro stability by reducing inflation and interest rate.

“The budget should result in sustainable development. There has not been any rigidity in our sustainable development, therefore, there should be ingredients in the budget to solve it,” he said in an interview on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show on Thursday.

Dr Assibey-Yeboah also explained that the budget should capture the social protection sector, that is, the health sector, education, and employment sector.

He further stated that the 2023 budget which will be read to the Parliament is not only for Ghanaians but for investors and shareholders as well. Therefore, it should capture important issues.

“The budget is not for only Ghanaians. Investors are watching, and multilateral agencies are paying attention. So it is critical for us to get it right this time,” he noted.

Ghana’s economy is not stable currently.

The government has decided to go to the IMF for assistance.

Many people blamed the Finance Minister for not managing the country’s economy well. They have therefore called for his resignation.

Despite this, Ghanaians are optimistic about what the 2023 budget entails since it will determine the future of our economy.
