One of Ghana’s well-known statesmen, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, has expressed his profound disgust with Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta’s tardiness in showing up for the reading of the 2024 budget, calling it “bogus.”
The seasoned politician lamented the ruling government’s insensitivity to the needs of the average Ghanaian while offering his assessment of the Finance Minister’s budget presentation.
Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe remarked, “I was very disappointed at the late arrival of the Finance Minister for the 2024 budget reading. To me, it shows clearly that he really didn’t know what exactly he was coming to say and present to the house.”
He underlined the necessity of having a budget that puts the welfare of the average citizen first.
He stated, “My concern for this country is basically the ordinary person in this country can lead a normal life. The ordinary person in this country could have hope – the ordinary person in this country can walk into any hospital and be treated. If these things are taken away from the ordinary Ghanaian, and they are unable to fend for themselves for a day, then I’m very much concerned because any budget that is not for the people means it’s a bogus budget.”
