General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia has commended Minority Members of Parliament for the way they handled the 2022 budget statement.
He said the opposition lawmakers stood on the side of Ghanaians to reject the budget.
“I will commend our MPs that so far they have stood on the side of Ghanaians and have exercised that power fully.
“In fact, if I knew that it was permissible to infiltrate and vote, I would have descended from the public gallery to come and make the number 138.
“So they (NDC MPs) have done their part. Now, there is confusion as to whether the budget has been accepted or rejected. We are still fighting that and they are pursing every legal method to ensure that the principals of the budget will be rejected,” he said at the NDC public forum on the 2022 budget on Wednesday December 8.
