The Deputy General Secretary of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has given an interesting twist to the performance of the Finance Minister during his delivery of the budget statement in Parliament.
According to the opposition party scribe, Ken Ofori-Atta only came to the floor of Parliament to sing praises on his late uncle Joseph Boakye Danquah and nothing else.
Koku Anyidoho, the former director of Communications at the Presidency made this comment on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show hosted by Kwame Afrifa Mensah on Accra-based Happy FM.
‘The minister came to the House to sing praises on his late uncle and not offer any reprieve for the suffering Ghanaians’ he said.
He said the action of the Finance Minister on the floor was so despicable that the former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Member of Parliament for Okere in the Eastern, Dan Kweku Botwe had to bow his head in shame.
The Minister came to speak English like his cousin who is the president of the Republic and nothing else adding that the finance minister did not offer any reprieve to Ghanaians in the not too good budget.
Mr. Anydoho said Nana Akufo-Addo and his finance minister are incompetent and it is about time Ghanaians look for a competent person to come and handle the affairs of the country.
He said whereas Ghanaians were waiting on the finance minister to offer solutions for the teeming unemployed graduates, he only came to sing praises on his late uncle instead of providing solutions to the problems being faced by Ghanaians.
He noted that the budget has nothing good for the people of the country and his budget statement was full of sugar- coated lies on the floor.
