Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will not join the Minster for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta in Parliament today for the Presentation of the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy.
This is because the Vice President is currently acting as the President of the Republic while President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is on vacation abroad.
This was made known by Minister for Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in a Facebook post.
According to him, “today is expected to be a good day for young Ghanaians looking for support to fuel their business ideas.”
“We look forward to some relief for road vehicle users, while at the same time equitably raising revenues to speed up the fixing of our roads,” he stated.
According to him, “local industry can expect measures that will make their products more competitive while dealers benefit from same measures to source the same products locally.”
The Finance Minister is expected to present the 2022 Budget Statement to Parliament in some few minutes.
