    May my constituents never forgive me if I vote for 2022 budget – Ablakwa

    Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has stated his readiness to vote against the passing of the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy presented to parliament by the Minister of Finance on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

    Ken Ofori Atta presenting the budget on the floor of parliament on Wednesday outlined various policies and measures the government intends to undertake in the coming year relative to revenue mobilization and expenditure.

    Tagged by the government as a budget that will steer the country towards economic growth during a post-COVID-19 outbreak, the opposition on the other hand have since its presentation raised various issues concerning the budget.

    Speaking on Friday, November 19, 2021, edition of Good Morning Ghana, Mr Ablakwa stated among other things the budget is going to lead to job losses for some 43,000 persons in the health sector alone.

    He faulted the budget on principle and on policy measures stating that his constituents will have a reason to take him on if he votes for the passing of the budget.

    “The Ministry of Health between 2021 and 2022, more than 23,000 are no longer going to be there as part of this staff rationalization process and its so-called light sizing. All the euphemism to cover up for what is the obvious, thus the intent to do. So Dr, this budget may my constituents never forgive me I vote for this budget based on principle and on policy measures,” he told the host of the morning show, Dr Randy Abbey.
