The Tamale Central MP, Murtala Mohammed, insists that the Minority will oppose the 2022 budget presented by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta.
Speaking on JoyNews‘ AM Show on Thursday, he explained to host, Israel Laryea that the budget being debated by the House currently, is full of “inconsistencies and half-truths”.
Because of this, he said, approving it is equivalent to sending Ghanaians to their graves.
“I called for the absolute rejection of the budget because we have a lot of inconsistencies and half-truths. If I were to support the approval of the budget, I must as well send the people of this country to their graves.
“What the Minister of Finance read was nothing but funeral announcements of the public sector worker, journalists, teachers and nurses.
“The only people whose funeral was not announced were the people who live in the Flagstaff House,” Mr Murtala Mohammed said
