The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said the Finance Minister’s ploy to delay the presentation of the 2023 Budget cannot save him from censure.
The lawmaker in a tweet on Friday contended that all previous budgets presented to the House by Ken Ofori Atta have been worthless as the country’s economic woes rather deepened under his watch.
“Ken Ofori-Atta can choose to illegally delay the Budget presentation to Parliament for as long as he wishes but that won’t save him. In any case, all his previous 6 Budgets have brought doom and damnation. Budget or no Budget, we’re going ahead with the Censure Vote.”
Meanwhile, New Patriotic Party majority caucus in Parliament wants Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta out of office, according to Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
The Suame MP said the whole caucus now supports calls for the Finance Minister to resign or be sacked.
“Even though the issue started with a group of 80-plus, the caucus meeting aligned with the decision of that group.”
“So it is no longer the cause of the 80-plus group. It is the agenda for the entire caucus,” Mr. Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said to journalists in Parliament.
