The Minority in Parliament has described the 2019 Budget Statement and Economic Policy of the Akufo-Addo-led government as “Made-in-China Budget”.
The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta on Thursday presented the 2019 budget in Parliament under the theme “A Stronger Economy, for Jobs and Prosperity”.
The budget represents the third of four budget statements of the government.
After the presentation of the budget, the minority lifted placards pooh-poohing contents of the statement.
Some of the inscriptions on the placards read: “Ahoky3r3 Budget”, “Hopeless Budget”, ”Borrow Borrow Budget” and “Made-in-China Budget”.
