The Volta Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. James Gunu, has reacted to the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy which was presented by the Minister of Finance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta yesterday.
According to him, they were expecting the 2022 budget to be an announcement of the funeral of Ghanaians, but Mr. Ofori-Atta went further to even read the biography and tributes of the suffering Ghanaians.
“We expected Ken Ofori Atta to announce only funeral yesterday but he went further to read the biography and tributes of the suffering Ghanaians,” he stated.
Mr. Gunu believes that, the 2022 budget was prepared to only worsen the already bad conditions of Ghanaians.
According to him, though they were expecting the budget to be an announcement of the funeral of the suffering Ghanaians, they did not anticipate for the draconian taxes that were proposed in the budget.
Mr. Gunu’s comment comes a day after the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy was presented to the nation.
Many Ghanaians have also taken to social media to express dissatisfaction over some of the proposed taxes in the budget.
