The Minority in Parliament has expressed its commitment to thoroughly scrutinize what they refer to as the Akufo-Addo government’s farewell budget in order to address the hardships faced by the public.
The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, is set to present the 2024 budget statement to Parliament on November 15, 2023.
During a meeting with the Parliamentary Press Corps, the Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, affirmed that the caucus would actively assist in the government’s budget review process.
This underscores the importance of parliamentary oversight in ensuring the budget aligns with the needs and concerns of the public.
“We will await the government’s presentation of the farewell budget for 2024. This will be President Nana Akufo-Addo’s final budget. So, we anticipate that this budget will mark their departure, and we hope that we will assist them through the consideration process. Where there are errors, we will rectify them, and where there are merits, we will support them appropriately to ensure their implementation,” he stated.
